NATURE LOVERS. Plans in the Sierra Norte de Madrid
Senda ornitológica: between valleys and mountains
Ornithological route through the valley of Horcajuelo de la Sierra, north of the community of Madrid and at the foot of the mountain ranges of Somosierra and Sierra Escalba. A privileged place in the transition between the Sierra de Guadarrama and the Sierra de Ayllón within the territory declared a Sierra del Rincón Biosphere Reserve in 2005.
The tour will range from the oak oak oaks, smoothie going through
cantues-tomillares and agricultural mosaics formed by ancient linares, orchards and meadows.
This variety of ecosystems is home to a wide variety of birdlife. We'll stand out in the spring: The colorful bee-eaters, the infallible hunters like red-backed warbler, common warbler and royal warbler, restless warblers like carrasqueña, mirlona... the cuckoo's song, the oropendola.
Inside the raptors: Road eagles, black milanos, moms, real milanos, griffon vulture, black vulture and we may be surprised by some European beep. And throughout the year mouners, real milanos, griffon vultures, some black vulture... finches-like finches, green greens, green, Goldfinches, Pardillos... paseriforms as coalmen, blacksmiths, Write..., spinds as the lesser peak. In the autumn we will be able to see the species
