Of the 177 bird species recorded in the Cañones del Ebro y Rudrón Natural Park, get to see in one day summer almost a third of them, it’s a good day of birding. The tour inside the canyons allowed us to see many of the most common species of these habitats, mixed with species that use the small villages as breeding site. is curious to see how many of them are almost exclusively linked to the urban environment of the villages. As most striking species in this area was the appearance of a Wryneck in the garden of a house. The journey through the highest areas of the Natural Park we met again was the surprise of a kind not extensive, and that years ago had disappeared, the Sand Martin. A small colony had a breeding site in a small slope, with the passage of time and the growth of the vegetation of the upper slope, fell on the sandy area, prompting this colony disappeared. But this year, are back again, digging nests in a new slope, close to gone. And as in the past birding tours, warblers,redstarts, stonechats, buntings, finches and raptors, have been the protagonists.
