Morocco: Information about the areas

...

 

We will start in Marrakech and drive east to the Atlas mountains. We continue eastwards to the stony desert of Boumalne. We continue eastwards to the westernmost part of Sahara close to Algeria where a collection of exclusive desertbirds are possible. From here we will drive westwards, and reach the coast via the famous Sous Valley. We will spend the last two nights in coastal area, doing day-trips from here.We will visit a  lot of areas between and around the places where we sleep. Below you  will find more information about each of the areas and some examples of  birds we might find, but you have to join us to get all the details.
 
Atlas mountains
A lovely landscape with peaks and cliffs, rivers and some farmland. Most of it is sparsely vegetated, and if not covered in snow we will go as high as app. 3000 meters. Lammergeier is possibly seen, and perhaps also the endemic Levaillant`s Green Woodpeckers. We probably also will see Blue Rock Trush, Ring Ouzel,  African Blue Tit, Alpine Accentor, Barbary Partridge, Shore Lark, Black Redstart, Crimson-winged Finch, Rock Sparrow, Cirl Bunting  and several others.
 
Stone deserts near Boumalne
Endless stony desert teaming of birds - larks in particular. Temminck`s Horned-, Desert-, Thick-billed-, Lesser Short-toed-, Short-toed-, Hoopoe-, Crested-, Thekla`s- and Skylark are all possible here as well as White-crowned Black-, Mourning- and Red-rumped Wheatears. Long-legged Buzzards and Lanners hunt the area, and three species of sandgrouse breed in the area.
 
Sahara
A tongue of the endless Sahara desert reach into the eastern part of the country, contributing with a collection of very exclusive birds. African Desert Warbler, Tristram`s Warbler, Desert Sparrow, Bar-tailed Desert Lark, Desert Wheatear, Brown-necked Raven and Houbara Bustard (need some luck for this one) are all possible here.
Coast Here we will find farmland, lakes and estuaries, with a diverse  bird fauna. Among the numerous wetland birds we expect to find several species of herons, Glossy Ibis and not least, the endangered Northern Bald Ibis. Marbled Teal and Ruddy Shelduck can be numerous as well as lots of waders and gulls - Audouin`s Gull included. Besides we hope to find Moussiers Redstart, Black-crowned Tchagra, Brown-throated Sand Martin and alot more.
