    The Basics

    I have never done bird watching before, is it a problem?

    No, you do not need experience for this tour. Our guide will be here with you to explain everything.

    What animals can we see during this tour?

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

    What is the best season for bird watching in São Miguel island?

    It all depends on what you want to see. For resident species, the best season is summertime, even if they are here all year round, this is the time of the year we can easier spot them. For migratory birds, the best time is at the end of winter, during the springtime and also at the beginning of autumn.

    What makes the Azores a good bird watching destination?

    Thanks to its large lakes, São Miguel provides ideal conditions for water birds and waders from all around the world. These birds are looking for rest and food after their long migrating trips. It is possible to find a variety of ducks from two different continents in the same spot. Many of the birds remain around the lakes from fall to springtime.
