The Cross-border Biosphere Reserve is a veritable paradise for birds appreciated by professional ornithologists and by enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. The nature reserve and the biosphere reserve have seven ZEPAs which are a real spectacle of diversity in addition to the “Charca de Brozas” Periurban Conservation and Leisure Park, a privileged site which is very popular with birdwatching enthusiasts because of its easy access and the number and variety of species which can be seen in it.
Over three hundred species of birds are found in this environment, some of which are in danger of extinction. For this reason the territory has seven Special Bird Protection Areas (Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves, ZEPAs) thanks to its clean air, its geography, and its abundant wetlands.
In the territory there are companies specialising in ornithology which accompany the visitor to help him or her to find the most sought-after birds from hides on private estates or from points located by these expert guides. Club Birding in Extremadura.
