Slender-billed Curlew Numenius tenuirostris

Morocco was probably among the best countries to have been able to observe this species with the last acceptable records being submitted in February 1998. Unconfirmed reports, subsequent to 1998, refer to the area Merja Zerga and whilst probable, these records have not been officially accepted. During the later part of 2008 Birdlife International, and other notable organisations, launched an appeal for all birdwatchers to search for Slender-billed Curlews. It seems to us to be very appropriate that we lead our launch of Moroccan Birds with the main feature focusing on this incredibly rare bird.

Peter Jones writes... I have now led 15 tours to Morocco and counting the times I have done recce and personal trips, then hopefully I have gained a fair bit of experience on the country and its birds. For me it is an opportunity and a challenge to be involved with compiling a web site dedicated to Morocco, more especially with the birds of this exotic destination. It is a remarkable country to visit and the more remarkable for its close proximity to mainland Europe, only 12 kilometres from Andalucia in Spain. Travellers from Europe or North America do not require a visa, so a visit is easy to plan and achieve. Birds, culture, scenery and great culinary delights await the more adventurous of those birding colleagues who love to visit somewhere different.

I am very fortunate to be associated with Spanish Nature; the philosophy of the company is not just about encouraging people to travel with them, but also sharing knowledge. The web site is work in progress and as it evolves I hope to provide specific information on some top birding areas. So keep an eye on this site for further details.

If you want to share some sites in Morocco, which you believe might be useful to include here, then please send us the information via the contact us facility on the main menu bar.


Do you consider a friendly atmosphere, comfort and relaxation, as well as value for money, an essential part of any well earned holiday? If you do, then all our bird watching adventures have been specifically designed to suit you!

A brief introduction

Moroccan Birds has been created by Spanish Nature. We have created this special web site for Moroccan Birds because this destination, for birding, is still not getting the attention it deserves. Spanish Nature are doing  birding tours in Morocco, both in spring and autumn, covering the desert and coastal areas.  Where possible we are employing local guides, but always under the supervision of one of our senior-guides, thus guaranteeing the high quality for which Spanish Nature is known throughout the birding world.

Responsible Tourism




Working in various countries we pay particular attention to details such as using local companies, local guides and wherever possible local produce. In Morocco we are introducing an educational programme to local schools focusing on nature and we are also helping cooperatives whose aim is to improve the quality of life for marginalized women and children.
