Birding in Tenerife
Birding in Tenerife is like being in paradise for all those who, apart from their fondness for birds, want to know more about the evolution and peculiar habits of this unique island fauna.
The island is home to some 60 breeding bird species, among which the fascinating Blue Chaffinch stands out, as it constitutes a local endemism, the Canary Islands Chiffchaff and the Laurel and Bolle’s pigeons, as they are exclusive to the Canaries. Others, such as the Plain Swift, the Berthelot’s Pipit and the Atlantic Canary, are shared with other archipelagos of Macaronesia.
The rest of the birds that breed in Tenerife are represented by endemic subspecies, both local and regional, as well as native birds of unquestionable interest, such is the case of the distinctive Barbary Falcon. In addition, we cannot forget the migrant species that arrive on the island, either sporadically, which would be the atractive rarities, or regularly.
The route to see these birds can vary, as it will depend on the location of your accommodation or the weather conditions, but it will always be equally interesting and with the aim of detecting the most characteristic species. Among other places, you can visit the Forest Crown, where the Canarian pine forest predominates, the spectacular Teide National Park, the Protected Landscape of Los Campeches, Tigaiga and Ruiz, or the Teno Rural Park, an old mountain range that includes the entire northwest sector. Do not hesitate, if you are interested in discovering the birds of Tenerife, their habitats and know a little about their ecology, you know what to do on your next visit to the island.
