Steppe Birds

Sometimes it is not necessary to go to a place very recondite to observe certain species of birds. Some of them have become accustomed to the human being and to the traditional performances that are carried out in the field. While they are still elusive and are surely the birds that are suffering the greatest amount of conservation threats.

Still, the Spanish humanized steppes composed of the monotonous fields of cereal, mostly wheat and barley crops, harbor the world’s largest populations of species such as the Great Bustard.

On our route we can observe these large and heavy birds feeding, performing courtship (the wheel) or in winter groups.

We will also surprise the shy Common Rosebug, the Ganga ortega, the Pale Harrier or the Merlin. In spring and summer, the number of species increases considerably in this ecosystem, being able to observe the Montagu’s Harrier, the Hobby, the Red Partridge, the Quail, the Bunting Squirrel or the Gray Wheatear.

With luck we will be able to discover the last populations of Little Bustard and Pin-Tailed Sandgrouse present in the area. During the activity we will be surrounded also by innumerable birds of cheerful songs, the aláudidos (Common Terre, Common Puffin, Calandra Lark, Common Lark)
