Birds of Andorra

Here are some of the birds you can find in the Principality of Andorra:

Bearded vulture

The bearded vulture is a vulture that gets its name from the custom of throwing bears from great heights to make them impact against the rocks and thus be able to eat the inside.


This bird usually inhabits forests of black, red or fir pine, it is also the largest of its lineage. Although it is able to fly it prefers to go by Earth.


It is known for being generally sociable, as it is usually close to people. This bird is relatively abundant in Catalan countries, and is very showy during the winter months.

Heron (pica pica)
