Birdwatching in Alentejo

The rolling steppe-like plains of southern Alentejo form a vast ocean of grassland and cereal fields with some scattered Holm Oak trees. White Stork is nesting widespread, often accompanied by Spanish Sparrows. Great and Little Bustards can be spotted and Black-shouldered Kite, European Roller, Western Rufous, Scrub Robin (May - August), Calandra Lark, Lesser Kestrel, Black-bellied Sandgrouse and Montagu's Harriers breed. Griffon and Eurasian Black Vultures occur from spring to autumn and the golden eagle, as well as the Spanish Imperial Eagle hunt in the area. Cranes overwinter, as well as large numbers of Lapwing and Golden Plover.
