The Montes de Malaga nature reserve, located north of the city of Malaga, belongs to the Andalusian Network of Protected Natural Sites with Natural Park status. Most of its extension is covered by an Aleppo Pine reforestation though we can still find some stands of native trees like Holm Oak and Strawberry Tree as well as Mediterranean scrub and the remains of olive groves and orchards around old farmhouses.

The shaded trails at Montes de Malaga provide the bird watcher with a great opportunity to go out in search for one of the most diverse set of forest birds in Malaga province when the heat goes up.
