Wildlife in Fuerteventura can be found if you look carefully and go quietly. There are Stone Curlews that are so camouflaged amongst the stoney fields that they can really on be spotted if they move (which they dont very often) or fly off because they are spooked by wandering dogs. The grey Shrike sings has  a lovely voice. Its repetitive like a song thrush, but repeats the same phrase about 8 times before it changes its tune. The ground squirrels locally known as chipmunks, steal tomatoes from the fields and scurry them to their little storage places in the stone walls. Buzzards and lesser kestrels too, but didnt get the chance to snap those..
