The high snow-capped peaks of the Sierra de Gredos, the vast grasslands of the penillanuras, the untouched forests, the endless meadows, the abrupt mountains that break and support the landscape, the large reservoirs, rivers, streams and the vast and varied expanses of crops, are a very favourable environment for birds, finding suitable habitats to establish.
The Aldea del Cano reservoir, also known as the Nogales reservoir, is located just over 1 km south of the town. It dates back to 1988, when it was built and conceived to support irrigation in the area.
The water is provided by the streams of Santiago, La Zafra, La Zafrilla, Nogales and La Cuesta, which run over extensive oak forests. The outcrops of large granite boulders characterize the landscape of the area, emerging even over the waters of the reservoir like islands.

These behaviors are mediated by sex hormones.
Only the males have antlers. This is not perennial, but falls at the end of the winter and grows back for the next rut. The growth begins in February and, by the month of July is already formed, but it will still be covered with a fine hair that must be detached in August.
