Some pictures of a bird watching trip around the Archidona District (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

Frank and I were waiting for the Eagle Owl at 6:30...

Have a look at some more pictures (sorry for the wires!) and the complete list of 48 species observed!

And we could just have a very ephemeral visual contact but a great hooting concert by both members of the couple while approaching their cliff.

Many more birds to account for, with plentiful of Ring Ouzels, Hawfinches and Azure-winged Magpies, great views of Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers and Rock Bunting, and my first Redwing of the season.

You can also live these experiences with us !!!
