Bird-of-prey observation

For several years now, the association Oiseaux Col libre has been taking up its summer quarters at the Col du Soulor. From mid-July to mid-September, the members of the association observe and count migratory birds of passage and local birds of prey, including the Bearded Vulture. Meet the volunteers on the "spot" located at the foot of the Gabizos and let yourself be guided in the field observation.

The Col du Soulor in the Pyrenees, a major European site for migratory birds to pass through.

Ornithology enthusiasts will enjoy the Col du Soulor this summer. Thanks to the members of Oiseaux Col Libre who are on site to count the birds crossing the Soulor Pass, you will be able to learn to recognise them all.

Several telescopes await you to observe as never before the migratory birds and birds of prey emblematic of the Pyrenees: griffon vultures, Egyptian vultures, kites... Don't forget to bring your own binoculars if you have any. It's free and for the whole family.

In addition to the Col du Soulor, there are two discovery trails that follow one another to extend the experience. From the car park to the right of the premises, discover the path of the Raptors. Marked out with five panels with evocative silhouettes, it gives you some keys to recognise the different species. Then comes the Passereaux path, a more playful itinerary through the forest to discreetly enter into the life of these little birds...

Tariff : free of charge.

Duration: Sentier des Rapaces 45 minutes, Sentier des Passereaux 1h30.
A good moment of discovery in a natural setting to fill your eyes and spend a beautiful day in the mountains with your family!
