The beautiful lands that form the north of Lleida, and more specifically in Pallars Sobirà, is an area that offers its visitors great diversity, creating a most surprising natural paradise that is home to countless animal species, becoming an idyllic spot for lovers of nature and bird watching and ornithological tourism. These lands are a refuge for a large number of birds, which is perfect for lovers of winged animals who seek to contemplate the most surprising species in full flight.
In just over two hundred kilometers you can enjoy contemplating a wide list of birds that find a home in this Lleida paradise. In humid areas such as Aiguabarreig del Segre and Cinca you will enjoy seeing beautiful species during the spring months, since it is one of the breeding areas for various herons, as well as the Utxesa area, where you can easily see the harpella throughout the whole year. In the southernmost area you will come across a steppe area where you can enjoy contemplating little bustards, bargains, and with a little more patience the churra.
If you go to the middle of the mountain, such as Montsec, you will be able to see the overwhelming flight of large birds of prey such as the bearded vulture or the golden eagle. Something else in the north, and more specifically in the Bourmot you will enjoy the black vulture, a place in which the reintroduction of the species is being carried out in the place. If you intend to observe species such as the white partridge or the black woodpecker, you must ascend to the Pyrenees.
El Pallars Sobirà offers ornithology lovers a series of routes where you will enjoy all these species and many more, some ornithological routes that are most interesting for bird watching fans, always surrounded by a natural environment that will surprise to your visitors.
The Vulture Valley Route is a perfect route for any type of person, for all audiences who wish to enjoy a day immersed in nature watching birds of prey such as the griffon vulture, the golden eagle, the common falcon, the Egyptian vulture, the eagle owl or the bearded vulture. Without a doubt, a delight for those who are passionate about birds and ornithological tourism. This route is designed to be done by car, although you can also do it by bicycle or on foot (31 kilometres). During the journey you will come across various viewpoints to enjoy some formidable visits.
Another of the most recommended routes is the Montsec Route, a truly privileged place for bird watching such as the harrier, Montagu's, ducks, fumarels, among many other species. Although the birds can be seen at any time of the year, the best time to see the beautiful and majestic birds of the place is between the months of September and June. In the winter months you can see resident and migratory birds such as the Bonelli's eagle, the eagle owl, the bearded vulture, or birds with beautiful autumn colors.
