In this article, signed by the great ornithologist Ricard Gutiérrez, refers to species that can be observed in Spain, with a paragraph that says "Actually if we go to the field to observe often know more than fifty species in a day is good. View over 100 is something and to celebrate. Reaching a special occasion the 150 is epic. " Of the 363 species regularly observed in Spain, in one morning to observe 53 species means having registered 16%, which is a good number. Registration of 53 different species of birds, falls within the mean observation for a day of morning in the PN of the Ebro and Rudrón. If we make a special effort, as we did for SACRE programs, this figure can rise to more than 60 species, reaching more than 70 species if we invest a whole day of birding. Of course there are seasons in which it is easier to register a good number of birds, and summer is not exactly one of them.
Anyway a good birding day and of course we enjoying scenery and villages of Las Merindades really wonderful.
