Ornithology on the Route

Habitats of the Ornithological Route of the Sierra de Béjar


At altitudes greater than 2,000 m. s.n.m. is given an open landscape where subalpine meadows, thickets of pyornos and stony ground are intermingling. In the meadows we can observe a alpine bisbita,common londra and launder buoy. In the piornales is very abundant the common accent,and, to a lesser extent, the common brazing,the hortelan scribe and the pechiazul. The stone-covered slopes and rocky peaks form the red rockerbiotope, Montesino scribe, pichiroja chova, golden eagle and griffon vulture.

Forests and scrub:

The forest in the Sierra de Béjar belongs to the vegetation layer called “supramediterránea”. Deciduous trees such as melojo oak and chestnut dominate. They house a rich bird of forest media, highlighting minor peak, picogordo, parrots cerrojillo, papialbo mosquito net, royal redhead and road eagle. There are also considerable extensions with wild pine forests where species such as charcoal charcoal, common piquituerto, common king and listing, grey chotacabaras,etc. are found. In areas with heather scrub, broom, blackberry, majuelo, wild rose bush, etc. are sheltered many smaller birds such asthe rabilarga warbler, torloin, carrasqueña, head-of-head, capirotada and the scribe noir and is the favorite hunting habitat of the culebrera eagle.


In the rivers of running water that are often accompanied by a riparian forest of alders, ash and willows, it is easy to hear, but difficult to see, the common nightingales and bastard hidden in the thicket of vegetation. The water blackbird,the Cascade laundrywoman,as well as the kingfisher are always close to the water.
