    GOOD PRACTICESFOR BIRDWATCHING

    WHEN CAN YOU SEE NESTING BIRDS?

    AQUATIC BIRDSThey are linked to freshwater

    and/or saltwater areas.

    ANTHROPIC BIRDSThey are found in urban areas

    or areas that have beenaltered by humans.

    CLIFF-NESTING BIRDSThey spend their life incliffs, ravines and even

    badlands (malpaís)

    PELAGIC BIRDSThey live miles offshore,only returning to land to

    breed.

    SHRUBLAND BIRDSThey are small songbirds

    that live in areas ofabundant vegetation.

    STEPPE BIRDSThey live insemi-desert

    areas.

    The welfare of the birds must come first.Their habitat must be protected.Do not alter the birds' behaviour.If you find an injured bird, report it immediately.Do not disturb migratory birds or rare birds.Respect regulation on bird protection at all times.Respect property owners’ rights.Respect individual rights in the observation area.Share your records with other local birdwatchers.Behave as you would like others to behave in your area.Avoid walking off the indicated paths and tracks.If you bring your dogs, you must keep them on a leash.Do not litter in order to avoid attracting rats, cats and dogsand to conserve the environment.
