The River Hu茅znar first bubbles to the surface in the beauty spot known as El Venero, a pleasant shady site where trees and water vie for prominence. Lesser Spotted Woodpecker is fairly easy in the riverside woodland and orchards. Other birds that might be seen at various times of year include Nuthatch, Short-Toed Tree Creeper, Cuckoo, Golden Oriole, Blackcap, Chaffinch, Firecrest, Siskin, Jay, Long-Tailed Tit, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Wryneck, Robin and Cirl Bunting. Locally notable Sweet Chestnuts and Hazels are also worth looking out for. More information in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra Morena Sevillana.
