Migrations

Autumn migration presents a great opportunity to observe species not common in our environment. The Navarrese Pyrenees provide all the features to let you enjoy this spectacle that is repeated every year. The main migratory route for western Europe passes through the hills of the Navarrese Pyrenees mountains that witness the journey of millions of birds each year.

In this tour, we will assist you at first hand to view the passage of the birds in the skies above the Pyrenean hills. From August until November, we will be able to observe eagles, hawks, storks, cranes, geese, doves and a multitude of birds in a unique display of effort and survival.

Bird-watching and studying nature is a fascinating activity. Birds have changing seasonal plumages and frequent certain habitats. Each species behaves in a particular way and makes characteristic sounds. Many live in places of great natural beauty. All this makes the identification of each species an adventure and a challenge for the observer. Each outcome is different and can be full of surprises.

 

The following list is merely indicative and shows some of the spectacular or interesting birds present in the places we visit. Of course there are many more species that may appear before our eyes and, once in a while, you’ll be surprised by observing rare species or unusual birds. Photography, bird guides and binoculars or telescopes will help us positively identify many of the birds that we will observe.
