Birdwatching on Tenerife Part 2, Birds in the Wild

As we write walking routes for Tenerife, as well as other Canary Islands and parts of Europe, we spend a lot of time yomping around the countryside and wandering along coastal trails. As a result we regularly ‘bump into’ birds that we wouldn’t normally see hanging around the house (see Bird Watching on Tenerife Part 1 – Domestic Visitors).

Usually there’s an element of surprise on the parts of both parties when this happens, so whilst I’m scrabbling for my camera, the bird in question is either taking off like the Roadrunner into the undergrowth or breaking the sound barrier to fly off to peaople free pastures new.

These are some of the birds we see whilst exploring the wilder corners of Tenerife.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
