Madrid Río Birdwatching Activity

At 10 am, we'll meet at the Príncipe Pío metro station exit and walk to the Manzanares River to discover the diverse range of birds that live in this part of Madrid.

During our activity, we'll explore the part of Madrid Río park that lies between the Segovia and Reina Victoria bridges. We'll admire some of Madrid's most iconic monuments, such as the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral, from a unique perspective as well as seeing lots of different birds.

In Madrid Río, you'll be able to see water birds that are very common in Spain. These include great cormorants, grey herons, white wagtails, night herons and nightingales. We may also find more exotic birds such as the Egyptian goose and the ruddy shelduck. We'll help you to identify these birds while discussing lots of fun facts about the species we spot.

We'll make several stops so we can try and spot as many birds as possible. Luckily for us, the constant presence of people in Madrid Rio means that these birds are used to humans and aren't very shy or skittish.

As we pass by the entrance to the Casa de Campo public park, we'll see typical forest birds such as Iberian woodpeckers, blue tits and chaffinches.

Our activity will finish at 1 pm when we say our goodbyes at the starting point.
