We are in one of the most interesting areas for bird watching steppe. Harsh weather conditions in winter makes the wilderness that few copies and the species that inhabit these hills. The, Spring will be the climax of the explosion of life of these lands. The planned route, if we in April May June, It is ideal for watching:
Dupont's larks. Their songs are a constant since almost let the car. We recall again the ban on claims to attract. We'll walk quiet on the roads, or by the edge of the crop, without interfering with their reproduction because it is a very delicate moment. On the good days of October again have a short period of songs that reveal us that are still there, something that does not seem to do in winter when most of the population disappears to go to places that are unknown.
Little bustard. Nowadays, this is one of the few areas of Soria where you can see several males sisón in a relatively small space. Precisely farms that will go first are the place chosen by his zeal for Little bustards. Latecomers here, perhaps not until early May, but during that month they will lavishing songs and exhibitions to try to attract the few females that may have in the area.
Stone-curlew. Another steppe birds, estival behavior here - arrivals in April- which can still be seen in small numbers. The make the journey in the early hours will help us a lot because most of these species are much lavished on the songs and calls in the early hours, to descend much activity throughout the day.
¿Black-bellied sandgrouse? We provide this kind between questions, since there is hardly any couple that moves through these areas and their evolution is quite strange, with just years without observations and other years with more presence. almost everything is unknown seasonal movements of this species, but it seems clear that no contribution from other areas here.
Great bustard. The central plains of Villaseca -called on maps or el Llano Blanco de Villaseca- they are the places where so recurrent and, from June, bustard males are left watching. Its origin is the same as we aim for bustards fields around Barahona: part of the male population of bustards of the community of Madrid leaving their breeding to spend the summer at high altitudes and fresh. In this plain and other nearby areas of the province of Guadalajara they have come to see up 30 copies, but the overall dynamics of the species seems to point to a decline in the visit of these giants of the steppe.
Other birds of the moor. Apart from the Dupont's lark This is one of those places where you can see very good numbers other species of interest as Greater short-toed lark, the Tawny pipit, Rock sparrow, Eurasian skylark, Thekla lark... a set of birds seek their livelihood in these plains. In these fields and in the nearby valleys breeds Montagu's harrier and the Western marsh harrier which together with the Booted eagles, will be the most frequent species. The Little owl still endures in these plains and if we make the route from mid August to September, not for nothing descartable see some Eurasian dotterel.
