We continue to enjoy the birds in the P.N. Cañones del Alto Ebro y Rudrón Nature Reserve, this time being able to observe authentic winged jewels, Iberian Green Woodpecker, Golden Oriole and Hoopoe …. Really all birds have something that can elevate the term jewel, only is necessary appreciate it and know to look at them and especially never tire of birding, because really there aren’t common birds. For example, is not a jewel the Goldfinch?, Or the Rock Sparrow with the yellow spot, like a autentic jewel, or the colour contrasts of Wheatears or small majesty of Shrikes …. we could go up complete the approximate 10,000 species of Earth.
But by the time we were the most representative of the P.N. Cañones del Alto Ebro y Rudrón, in this new day of birding inside the natural park, we recorded a total of 43 species including Griffon and Egyptian Vultures, specialists such as the European Honey Buzzard and a good number of small and spectacular birds.
Throughout the season, and as usual, the Red-backed Shrike is one of the easiest species to observe, and now with adults accompanied by several young people who occasionally are seen hunting.
But as mentioned earlier, the presence of very striking bird, the Golden Oriole, without doubt, makes that we stop in their search in a poplars. While the Iberian Green Woodpeckers showed us their undulating flight. Stonechats, Sparrows, Redstarts, Warblers, Harriers … to end the spectacle of the Hoopoe.
