The wealth of birds and the splendid scenery has given Extremadura the status of a natural paradise. The rugged mountains, steppes and Mediterranean woodlands of this once unknown backwater in western Spain, are now one of the most appreciated destinations for wildlife enthusiasts. With this guide you will discover why. The Crossbill Guide to Extremadura is fully updated, revised and expanded with many new routes. Like all other Crossbill Guides, this title poses and answers two key questions: what makes this area special, and how you can experience this uniqueness for yourself. This book describes the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use of this region, plus 24 detailed routes and 26 sites with specific suggestions on where and how to find the birds, wildlife and flora.
