Bird watching in Aluminé See map

Bird watching is one of the new activities that can be done on Aluminé. Spring is the best season for this activity because it is the time when migratory birds arrive. Species that are highlighted are: the torrent duck, pink flamingo and black-necked swan.

Dawn and dusk are the best times to observe the behavior of birds. The idea is to spend a quiet day in contact with nature.

There are different circuits around the city in which you can perform this activity and observe different species.
