The birdlife here in the Pyrenees is very specialised.


Notable Species

The area excels in the number and variety of raptors- Bearded Vulture (five pairs nesting locally); Golden Eagle (found on the mountainside opposite Les Sorbiers); Booted Eagle, Bonelli's Eagle, Short-toed Eagle, Egyptian Vulture, and the ever-present Griffon Vulture. Even a couple of Black Vulture. The bird most enthusiasts will want to see is the elusive Wallcreeper which during the summer is seldom found below 2000m.
