Birdwatching is a tourist activity that follows the contemplative of ecotourism. It is a leisure activity based on the observation of birds in their natural environment.
In addition to the simple observation, using binoculars and field telescopes, contemplates other variants like photography, painting and illustration of nature.
The practice of wildlife observation is considered the most sustainable activity among all those identified with ecotourism, and of these, bird watching is the most widespread and widely practiced in the world, especially in developed countries.
Birdwatching stimulates a harmonious relationship with the environment stimulating a subtle interaction with the place visited. The birdwatcher should be an integral part of the medium and not an invader, always moving in silence, as any kind of agitation can keep birds away.
Adjacent to the beautiful Lagoa de Óbidos, Poça do Vau is a perfect habitat for a vast amount of bird species. The almost constant presence of water zones, filled with undergrowth, creates the ideal conditions for the constant presence of local and migratory birds, some of which are in danger of extinction.
