In April and May of this year we set off on a 1000+ km warm up hike and birding trek. After receiving tons of emails asking for us to share this time on trails and about what birds we found we have spent the last 3 days writing and posting about 20 of the blogs.
The first part of our expedition in spring of this year was on the Camino de Madrid and the 322 km took us about 12 days to hike and bird. I was asked to lead a birding group along this route and while there were logistic challenges it was nonetheless a wonderful experience that was unlike any of our previous pilgrimages over the years.

After completing the birding trip along the Camino Madrid we continued our venture for 2 days along the Camino Frances before trekking the 119 km long Camino San Salvador, and then proceeded westward along the Camino Primitivo (yet to have photos edited) to Santiago and onward to Fisterra.

And a few species from our 12 days on the Camino Primitivo and 3 days on the Camino Fisterra....
While in previous years we have gone on other hikes across Europe and North America we have only rarely taken our binoculars and camera gear to bird. The exception being the Camino Portuguese Central in 2019 .

Thank you for reading, and we hope you enjoy!
We hope to get the images and blogs up for the Camino Primitivo very soon, but as of today we are back on the Trans Canada Trail in Alberta heading towards the Pacific ocean!
