Bird Watching on Tenerife Part 1, Domestic Visitors

Our house is actually a decent ‘hide’ for spotting a quite wide range of Tenerife birds. A metal bowl filled with water – until enthusiastic blackbirds empty it – acts as a sort of watering hole. The birds queue for their twice or thrice daily bath whilst the roof tiles are a good vantage point for our birds of prey on the lookout for sunbathing lizards.

These are some of the Tenerife bird varieties we commonly see without leaving the house.
