Cantabria is one of the greenest provinces in Spain and from a holiday home in this region you can further explore this beautiful region. Nature consists of mountains with small authentic mountain villages in the interior and a coastal strip with long sandy beaches. The mountains are interesting for all kinds of different birds of prey. The most common bird of prey that you will certainly encounter here is the black kite. You can recognize the black kite by its slightly forked tail and, unlike the red kite, by the lack of "light windows" in the under wing.
In addition to black kites, you can also observe other species of birds of prey. During your walks through the nature of Cantabria, watch for a praying bird of prey that often resides near telephone masts. When you see a large bird of prey praying, you are probably dealing with a snake eagle. These birds of prey are common in this part of Spain. Another bird of prey that you will definitely see is the dwarf eagle, this is the smallest eagle in Europe and can be recognized by its "headlights". When you see a dwarf eagle flying in front it can't miss it!
