Birding Adventures
in Extramadura, Spain
Thursday November 2
7:30 at Scout Island Nature House

Travel through Spain with Connie Haeussler and Leo Rankin
The main focus of their trip was birding in the province of Extremadura, on the border with Portugal.  It's the wildest, least developed part of Spain, and thus a haven for birds.  The region has Roman ruins, Arab fortresses and medieval towns as well as Monfrague National park, famous for its raptors. Birding highlights included hoopoes, great bustards, black storks, european rollers, bee eaters and hundreds of white storks.
