Alcornocosas is one of the most interesting public estates in Sierra Morena Cordobesa. Such is the pristine quality of the Mediterranean woodland cloaking this hilly, stream-creased terrain that it has often been chosen for film exteriors. Hawfinch, Dartford, Subalpine and Orphean Warblers are the top-billing birds, together with a strong supporting cast of Cirl Bunting, Melodious Warbler, Thekla Lark and Red-Legged Partridge. Varied vegetation and a large Red Deer population make it a very complete trail. More information in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra Morena Cordobesa.
