Birdwalking at Sierra de las Cabras (Costa del Sol, malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

A very scenic walk in a cloudy day in which birds made it very difficult to photograph them...

Have a look at some more pictures and the complete list of 34 species observed!

Apart from the beauty of these mountains, the bird highlights of the day were the number of different thrushes present in the area (Song, Mistle and Blue Rock ones, Blackbird and Ring Ouzel), a small Firecrest led by a Blue Tit in its visit to the uplands, a big amount of Rock Buntings (and some fewer Cirl ones) and the conflict between the couple of Golden Eagles and a Bonelli’s one.

You can also live these experiences with us !!!
