About this map

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Unlike other Andalusian wetlands, the Guadalhorce River Mouth Nature Place is located within the urban footprint of the city of Malaga. This is unique since most wetlands in Andalusia are often found amidst agricultural surroundings. The Guadalhorce River Mouth is most important for its high bird diversity. Despite its small size (70 hectares), the area contains an elevated proportion of the bird species found in Andalusia.

Guadalhorce River Mouth Nature Site: Birding Map illustrates the high value of this area for birds. The authors describe the seasonal variation in the appearance of 70 of the more commonly observed bird species, illustrated here, as well as descriptions of the status of 244 bird species resident in the area. This work compiles the most up-to-date and comprehensive list of bird species found here.

Summary in Spanish:
El Paraje Natural de la Desembocadura del Guadalhorce es un espacio natural singular dentro del contexto de los humedales de Andalucía pues se encuentra dentro del casco urbano de la ciudad de Málaga, lo que es muy peculiar pues la mayoría de los mismos se ubican en áreas agrícolas

El principal valor del Paraje Natural es la riqueza de aves que alberga. A pesar de sus pequeñas dimensiones (67 hectáreas), en este espacio natural está representada una elevada proporción de las especies de aves acuáticas detectadas en Andalucía. En esta obra se describe la fenología de las 70 especies más fáciles de observar, las cuales han sido ilustradas, y el estatus de un total de 244 especies, lo que constituye el listado más completo y actualizado de las especies de aves presentes en el paraje.
