Discover the birds of the Alentejo

In Alentejo, birds are the best barometer of the season change. Stroll in and out of the estate and discover a new world of colours, chirping and flight modes. Here you can spot various species of birds that come and go with the seasons, from Northern Europe and North Africa, but also residents: from the bustard, currently a protected species, to the cranes, azure-winged magpies, lapwings, goldfinches and hoopoes.
