What a magnificent few minutes of bird watching. I’m not a birder, per se, but the breadth and array of birds in Spain is remarkable — so many species and types of habitats. The filmmaker must have traveled thousands of miles getting these shots:

  • Riglos and Valle de Tena (Pyrenees, Huesca)
  • Bardenas Reales (Navarra)
  • Montes de Toledo and Andújar (Jaén)
  • Albufera de Valencia and Dénia
  • Tablas de Daimiel (Ciudad Real) and Doñana (Huelva)
  • Coast of Murcia and Almeria
Being an American, it’s the Spanish Imperial Eagle that captured my imagination: large, powerful, majestic. (Oh, you’ll know it when you see it!) It’s something to behold. Here’s a list of all the species in order of appearance:
  • Bubo bubo
  • Gypaetus barbatus
  • Tichodroma muraria
  • Chersophilus duponti

  • Cercotrichas galactotes
  • Aquila adalberti
  • Sylvia hortensis
  • Aegypius monachus
  • Cyanopica cyana
  • Galerida theklae
  • Sturnus unicolor
  • Dryocopus martius
  • Dendrocopos leucotos
  • Phylloscopus bonelli
  • Serinus citrinella
