Here’s date for bird lovers because in Almuñécar from the 1st to the 4th of November the XXXI Concurso Ornitológico will be held.
During those days, from 10.00h to 14.00 and 17.00h to 21.00, those interested will be able to see hundreds of different bird species in the Edificio Plaza Mayor – that’s the one near Carbonel’s at the top of town. On Sunday the 4th, however, the event will close at noon, so there’s no afternoon viewing session.
The competition started to receive entrant specimens on the 27th of last month and if last year is anything to be going on, they’ll be around 1,800 different birds on show. The competitors come from Almería, Málaga, Mallorca as well as Granada.
Birds are judged on plumage, posture within the different categories: European, exotic, hybrids and parrots Se entregaron premios en los apartados de: color, postura, fauna europea, exóticos, híbridos y budgerigar-parrots.
