Bird enthusiasts can observe in the Region of Murcia nearly 300 species of birds, but not in all seasons. Only about a third of them are sedentary. On the other hand, all birds cannot be found in all kinds of ecosystems, as they are distributed across the regional landscapes according to their specific adaptations: from high mountains to the coast, and from salt pans to wetlands, forests, bushes, steppes, orchards, cereal fields, wooded upland, etc.

Here are some of the most representative bird species in this region:
