In June 2001, my girlfriend and I visited the Canary Islands Tenerife and La Palma for one week. We went to look up some friends who live in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, but I also wanted to see La Palma, as I had never visited that island before. It proved to be a wonderful visit. We drove around to see as much as possible of the countryside and did some birding, too. I also took the opportunity to watch the butterflies occurring at these islands (of which several are endemic). Videostills of some birds encountered are shown below; just click at the thumbnails to obtain a larger image.
