We took an 8 hour birdwatching tour with in Portugal with a guide Antonio, who's been a forester for 25 years. He can identify a bird just by their chirps and how they fly from the distance, is disappointed when seeing a sick cork tree, and has opinions on bullfighting. He explained to us how estuary works, ways animals adapt to the human cycle, and EVOA’S conservation efforts. His favorite bird is a raptor.

Their conservation efforts include wine, olives, meat, cork, forest, conservation.

“You have to go to bathroom during a road trip right? Estuary are just birds’ gas station through their aerial highway” - on the topic of migration

There are no flamingos in the winter
