Six birds to look out for in the Garden in September and October

A naturalist in the Gulbenkian Garden

There are plenty of interesting things to discover on a walk around the garden in September. Among them are the little birds chirping up in the trees. They are not all great singers, but among them you’ll hear the best voices, as is the case with the Wren. Watch the acrobatics and hunting strategies of these tiny birds as they look for seeds and insects. These six species will certainly make stroll through the Garden even more enjoyable.

Find out more about the Gulbenkian Garden’s visitors, in the book entitled The Birds of the Gulbenkian Garden, by João E. Rabaça. 
Now it’s your turn. 
How many of these birds can you spot? We challenge you to take a photo or draw the birds you have seen and share your images with us, sending them to [email protected]. We will publish the best ones in Wilder. 

Throughout the year and on a monthly basis, Wilder magazine recommends the wildlife not to be missed at the Gulbenkian Garden.
