Young season

 Grey Wagtail, young and adult

As we saw in our previous birding tour, in the P.N. Hoces del Alto Ebro y Rudrón Natural Reserve, the number of young birds is very striking, we can see many young birds of differents species, many of them still not far from their nests and fed by their parents, Shrikes, Wagtails, Finches, Sparrows … In this great birding day with a good time of sun and clouds, but with some wind, we recorded a total of 51 species in just over four hours. One of the Red-backed Shrikes families, was one of the first family groups seen, other adults and their chicks were Grey Wagtail, Rock Sparrows, Stonechats, Sand Martin, Spotless Starling, Serin, … Five species of raptors, Griffon Vulture, Egyptian Vulture, Booted Eagle, Common Buzzard, Black Kite. Interesting behaviour of Common Redstart, using a clothesline like lookout post for hunting.
