Birdwatching in their habitat is a good reason to visit Estac and  a good choice for your holiday in the Pyrenees.
In our area you can see prey in mountainous areas and aquatic birds in wetter areas, such as Lake Montcortès.

Our paths cross two areas: one in the village and the other in the surroundings, taking the car a few kilometers.

We have the ideal environment to find species like Eurasin Great Tit (Parus major), the European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster), the Cirl Bunting (Emberiza cirlus) or the Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio).

The cliffs around make their nests Vulturs (Gyps fulvus), with the Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus).

In the wetlands next to the hedges surrounding make their nests the Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin), the Melodious Warbler (Hippolais polyglotta) and the  Red Kite (Milvus milvus), for example.

We have all the routes with detailed information and photographs when you come home!
