Spain, with its vibrant culture and natural beauty, has always been at the top of my list of countries to visit. And with all those eagles, larks, and sandgrouse, not to mention Azure-winged Magpie, the Iberian Peninsula holds a prominent place on my birding bucket list.

If your head hasn’t yet been filled with dreams of the avians of España, wait until you see this video. Raúl Tomás of Wildglimpses just put together a brief but breathtaking look at the birds of Spain. Find four minutes to marvel at this exquisite presentation of places you want to be and birds you want to see:

After you’ve enjoyed this video, I highly recommend you marvel at more of the same at Wildglimpses. Raúl’s epic videos of places like Patagonia, Lapland, and the Pyrenees are like love letters to some of the world’s most beautiful places and creatures.
