Birding in Extremadura and Monfragüe Park - Andalucía, Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas - April 2012


Some days in Extremadura again, in order to see our favourite birds.

This time, we had a very good observation of the Spanish Imperial Eagle, with some interesting behaviour near the nest. The male was aggressive against the vultures and some chases and threat displays were performed while flying or perching on rocks.

The best moment was the observation of a pair of Montagu's Harrier, with a rare dark morph female.

The Eurasian Griffon Vultures are always living in the cliff faces of Monfragüe Park, and we saw almost one white downy chick per nest. But the Egyptian and the Cinereous Vultures were present too.

Several species of small passerines were singing and displaying in the vegetation.

That was another interesting short trip to this beautiful place!
