Bird Watching Tour in Sao Miguel Island

Sao Miguel island

The archipelago of the Azores is a protective oasis that receives birds and their nests in numbers that exceed the 400 species.

It is not only an indulge for endemic species, but also the greatest secret to rescue some species facing extinction.

Throughout the year, flocks coming from America and Europe turn this oceanic landing spot into their pleasant resting platform, and their tweets become the natural orchestra of the islands.

The extraordinary diversity of the islands is capable of providing, to each species, a different natural habitat:

The margins of the lagoons, the height of the mountains, and the thick vegetation, as well as the recesses in the cliffs are a paradise to any ornithologist, and a delight to the common lover.

All of these wings streak the sky; the shadow of their wingspans pass by the landscape, and the flights of the most delicate ones fill each scenario with movement.

    La Experiencia

    Birds are wonderful creatures. They are of all size and colors. Trying to find them is an exciting experience. Don’t worry, there is 100% chance we will find something!

    The Azores are a great home or point of passage for hundreds of birds from the world.

    We also have some species that can only be seen here in São Miguel island! So, watch out!

    • Looking for birds

      – This tour starts with the check in or pick up in Ponta Delgada. We will then drive to our first bird watching location.

      – We will visit places like Nordeste, Furnas, Vila Franca do Campo and Caloura.

    • Many birds to see

      – During the tour, you will discover some of the 33 species of birds nesting in the Azores.

      – Bird watching in São Miguel means the chance to spot one of the rarest birds in Europe. It is the Azores bullfinch (Pyrrhula murina). It was disappearing, but an amazing conservation work saved it from extinction.

      – You can see many different endemic subspecies around the island, such as the Saffron finch (Serinus canaria) only in Macaronesia. We also have sub-endemic species such as the Common Chaffinch of the Azores (Fringilla coelebs moreletti). Also, the Goldcrest (Regulus regulus azorica), the Azores Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus azorica) and the Kite (Buteo buteo rothschildi), among others.

    • Diversity of habitats

      – São Miguel has different habitats for different birds. From forests for passerines, coastal areas for waders, lakes for water birds and seabirds.

      – Throughout the year, resident birds coexist with regular migratory birds and also some rare species who choose this island to land.

      – At the end of the day, we will return to Ponta Delgada with, hopefully, lots of pictures.
