CÁCERES BIRD FESTIVAL

The Cáceres Bird Festival combines cultural and natural heritage. It takes place every year in May after the arrival of Lesser kestrels from Africa. The city of Cáceres has a rich wildlife that gives it another attraction for visitors and tourists from Spain and all over the world who are always surprised by the spectacular towers replete with storks' nests, Lesser Kestrels hovering in the sky or the sonorous calls of common swifts flying over streets and plazas.

 The Festival’s main aim is to promote Extremadura's extraordinary natural resources and its status as an unusual case in the European context.

 The Festival offers activities related to leisure and wildlife conservation for the general public (children, families, etc).

 Extremadura is one of the few European regions that have declared Special Protection Zones for Birds (ZEPA) within urban centers, currently there are 21 towns and cities protected for their importance for birds. Of these, 19 ZEPAs have been specially designated for housing Lesser kestrels in their buildings.
