The Canary Islands are a volcanic archipelago with a subtropical climate and unique avifauna. As an extension to a birding trip to the Iberian Peninsula or Morocco, these islands are the perfect choice. Our Birdwatching in the Canary Islands Tour is dedicated to finding all the endemic birds in Fuerteventura and Tenerife.
The individual islands have distinct microclimates and are home to different species and endemics. During this trip we will visit two of the seven islands: Tenerife and Fuerteventura. While Tenerife is well vegetated and has tracts of sub-tropical laurel forest, Fuerteventura, which is just 100 km away from the African coast, is effectively desert or semi desert.
Combining Fuerteventura and Tenerife gives us a chance to see all the endemic species and most of the subspecies in this birding tour. Some of the most interesting species we are likely to see here cannot be seen anywhere else! This is the case of the Laurel’s Pigeon, the Bolle’s Pigeon or the Blue Chaffinch, which can be seen in Tenerife, or the Fuerteventura Stonechat in Fuerteventura.
