The Region Extremadura is located in Spain on one of the major European bird migration routes, one reason why this region provides great birdwatching opportunities. The Extremadura is a highly diversified and authentic location for birdwatching because the landscape consists of a great variety of habitats: From high mountains of the Sierra de Gredos over pasture lands of the peneplains and the Mediterranean forests along mountains and riverbanks to a network of tributaries of the Tajo and Guadiana rivers discontinued by large reservoirs.
In Extremadura more than 330 bird species were already counted. Over 190 species are breeding in this region and almost 190 species come for wintering.
The Extremadura is habitat of the Iberian Imperial Eagle, Black Storks and Bonelli’s Eagles.
