Bird Watching with a Local in the EVOA Conservation Area

Price Not Available

Observe thousands of birds in their natural wetland surroundings. The EVOA is one of Europe's most important bird conservation areas. Your guide helps you pick out the best hiding place to sit and watch the rich diversity of bird species that use this site.

Journey out of Lisbon to EVOA, the Tagus Estuary, which is not only Portugal's largest wetlands but also one of the most important in Europe. Your guide explains its significance as a home for many local species and a vital rest stop for migrating species moving north and south.

Hiding places are carefully and thoughtfully dotted around the area. Take up residence in one and train your eyes on the skies and waterways. Common sights and sounds are the chatter of a great reed warbler and the purple heron. Depending on the time of year, there could be up 120,000 birds to watch and identify, a nearly impossible but enjoyable task for any budding ornithologist.
