Along with numerous other high-altitude species, the ski resort at Oukaimeden (above Marrakesh) is a reliable site to enjoy the Alpine Accentor. Members of the small accentor family resemble narrow-billed sparrows or finches, and have radiated to fill mostly mountainous or forested terrain throughout Eurasia. In Europe the Hedge Accentor, or Dunnock, is a notable exception, it being a common garden and hedgerow bird.
