Tourém Birds Track

Tourém Bird track is a 1.6 km course marked with the starting and finishing points near the Interpretive Centre of Birds, in flat ground. It crosses meadows, farmlands and oak woods. It is very easy and enjoyable to follow this track which has many shades and some parts with water and mud. That’s why we recommend the use of appropriate footwear. You can also visit the “Salas” Dam if you go to the bridge.

Due to the diversity of habitats - forest, riverine and mostly rural areas - it has a large number of bird species. Spring is the best season for bird watching, because of the quantity and variety of birds at this time of the year.

We can highlight species like: Great Crested Grebe (Podiceps cristatus), Stock Dove (Columba oenas), Wryneck (Jynx torquilla), Tree Pipit (Anthus trivialis), Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio), Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula), among many others.
