Andalucía has many resident birds and also attracts many migrants.
The mountains play host to many large birds of prey such as griffon vultures and various eagles.
The salt marshes have flamingos, spoonbills, black-backed stilts, green shanks, bee-eaters and many other waders. Flamingos can be seen almost every day from Cortijo de los Flamingos. Watching them landing, taking off and flying over the villa is unforgettable view.

Along the coast between Sanlúcar and Tarifa are various viewpoints from which to watch the resident and migratory birds. Chiclana has a large area of salt marshes, which provide an ideal habitat for many species of bird.

There is a visitors' centre in Chiclana de la Frontera - Salinas de Chiclana which organise summer camps, workshops and educational activities every Sunday.
