Corujeira and Avelar - Montalegre

Along Montalegre in the south quadrant, you find forests with beautiful spaces for walking, bird watching and listening to the birds. The east side is dominated by Pine-of-cone (Pinus sylvestris), with Arbor Vitae and Birches in some areas, where there are several species of forest birds such as Woodpeckers, Creepers, Titmice, Bullfinches, Redstarts, Southern Pochards and Finches but the most watched species is the Crossbill (Loxia curvirostra).

The west side is dominated by oaks (Quercus robur), hazels (Corylus avellana) and pines-of-cone (Pinus sylvestris). There are many birds that are observed here, but the most common ones are the Titmice, the Creepers and the Woodpeckers. Despite this, we highlight the presence of Tree Pipits (Anthus trivialis), Northern Goshawks (Accipiter gentilis) and Sparrowhawks (Accipiter nisus).
