In Search of Lynx in Andalucia

By Linda Tancs

The elusive Iberian Lynx is one of many lures in Andalucia’s Doñana National Park.  That’s one of only a handful of places you’ll find the world’s most endangered species of cat.  Equally endangered is the Spanish Imperial Eagle, down to 15 breeding pairs.  You might have better luck glimpsing grey herons, lanner falcons, ring and turtle doves, partridges, oxpeckers, cattle egret, storks and vultures.  That’s because the park is one of the largest heronries in the Mediterranean region and a habitat for hundreds of thousands of birds.  Springtime is particularly amazing, when wintering waterfowl commingle with summer arrivals migrating between Africa and Europe.
