Llanos del Libar

We decided to visit Llanos del Hibar after a recommendation from a birding friend, John Castello. We'd never been to this particular area before and after driving for two hours (some of the time spent manoeuvring winding roads), we finally got to our destination!
Llanos del Hibar
Llanos del Hibar is predominantly rocky (mountain area) so we drove around, stopping off every now & then to scan the area. Being a very bright and sunny day, we thought it might be a good opportunity to spot Raptors.
