From November to January, tens of thousands of Starlings fly in spectacular murmurations before settling down to roost in the reed beds. The lakes are surrounded by the typical landscape of the Rioja Alavesa, i.e., vineyards, stands of almond and olive trees and patches of Mediterranean scrubland, in which birds that are rare in the Basque Autonomous Community nest. These include birds such as the Black-eared Wheatear, Short-toed Lark and Ortolan Bunting.
