Bird Watching Majorca
Bird watching is a very frequent hobby in Majorca. In the north of the island, nearby our rural hotel Monnaber Nou, there are several bird-watching points from which a great variety of species can be observed.
Majorca is one of the few places where black vultures can be seen, an endangered species that has disappeared in most of Europe and flies majestically over the Tramuntana mountain range. Monnaber Nou collaborates with a foundation dedicated to its preservation.
Just a short drive away from Monnaber Nou is Puerto Pollença, a well known bird-watching point in the North of Majorca, where bird watchers will find a great variety of bird species that either live on the island or stop here during their migration flights between Europe and Africa.
S’Albufera, between Puerto de Alcudia and Ca’n Picafort, also very close to our hotel, is the biggest wetland on the island and home to 250 different bird species and therefore also a very important bird-watching site.
On the northern tip of the island, the Formentor Peninsula offers not only breathtaking views of its spectacular cliffs, but also the possibility to view Eleonora’s Falcons, Peregrine Falcons, Pallid Swifts, Crag Martins, Nightingales, Blue Rock Thrushes, Balearic Warblers, Firecrests, Ravens or Crossbils in their natural habitat.
