Birding around Celorio

Birding around Celorio

This route aims to learn about the birds who live around Celorio de Onis, a little village belonging to Cangas de Onis’ council. This place embraces the junction of the Güeña and Covadonga Rivers which flows from here as Güeña River into the Sella River, a few kilometers further.

A peaceful and charming walk along the Güeña riverside might allow us to observe some of the common birds in this area: green woodpecker, great spotted woodpecker and eurasian nuthatch are regular visitors of these river banks. It is a solid ground trail with a very gentle slope.

The route is short, around two hours long, depending on the amount and variety of birds we find. We don’t rush, stopping whenever necessary to clear up some doubts or to watch and listen to our winged friends.

Comfortable shoes are highly recommended but mountain or tech footwear is not mandatory (the path is flat and with a really low level of difficulty). A pair of boots or sport shoes with good soles will always help you to prevent a slip though.
