Partridges Winter Birding Trip, Northern Iberian Mountains, Spain

Partridges Winter Birding

A one-day Partridges winter birding trip seeking the Pyrenean Grey Partridge (Perdix perdix hispaniensis) which is a rare subspecies of Grey Partridge and only inhabits in Northern Iberian Mountains. When the snow covers high altitude Mountain passes, is the only moment to easily detect these secretive birds. This unique habitat covered by heath and scrubland is also the home to another rare mammal: the Broom Hare (Lepus castroviejoi) endemic to the Cantabrian Mountains (December to March).

  1. Grey Partridges in Winter
    Siri F. Thomson07 Apr 2018







    I never expected to enjoy birdwatching on the snow as we did in Valdelugueros this February 2018. Pyrenean Grey Partridge is the Iberian subespcies of the Grey Partridge, almost impossible to watch but easy in Vegarada Mountain Pass when it is snow covered. Cold and wind in withe but unforgottable experience in NW Spain (Cantabrian Mountains). I surely will repeat winter birding wherever in White. Thanks to More Than Birds
