Bird Watching in Algarve

The East Algarve has plenty to offer birding enthusiasts with a large variety of birds throughout the year. Many migratory birds can be found here during the Autumn and Spring. Many species,  including Bluethroats, Spoonbill, and Greater Flamingo also stay in the Algarve over the Winter months.
In Summer, you have the chance of seeing European Bee-Eaters, Golden Orioles, European Rollers, Woodchat Shrikes and Red-Necked Nightjars.
All year round you can see such exotic birds as White Storks, Black-Winged Stilts, Avocets, Hoopoes, Azure-Winged Magpies, Sardinian Warblers and Common Waxbills. It is also the only place in the Europe you stand the chance to see a Purple Galinule - a bird on the edge of extinction - and chosen as the symbol of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Please contact if you would like to join one of the local experts for a very informative birding tour of the area.
