Birding Patagonia and the Pampas

spacer

A comprehensive tour to Southern Argentina

spacer
16 days / 15 nights
spacer
 
The most comprehensive birding expedition to the best of Southern Argentina: The Pampas, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.
Expect: 200-250 species (visits same sites as the Tours: Southern Argentina Parts I and II).
Trip report and wildlife checklist available.
Departures anytime from October to March.

 

The aim of this tour is to cover the best birding sites known for the southern regions of Argentina, from Buenos Aires to Tierra del Fuego, therefore allowing the best chances to find both endemics and specialties of the Pampas and Patagonia.

At the Pampas, special birds include Greater Rhea, Hudson`s Canastero and Bay-capped Wren-Spinetail, all fond of grassy fields. Wren-like Rushbirds, Black-headed Duck, South-American Painted Snipe and the beautiful Many-coloured Rush-Tyrant are special inhabitants of the lagoons and reed-beds. The Atlantic ocean coast and the Rio de la Plata mudflats are home to Olrog`s Gull, Snowy-crowned Tern and several waders.

 

Once in Patagonia, we`ll visit the area of San Antonio Oeste and the Valdes Peninsula, well known as an endemic hotspot. Sandy Gallito, White-throated Cacholote, Rusty-backed Monjita, Carbonated Sierra-Finch and Patagonian Canastero are some of the targets, plus several specialties such as Yellow Cardinal, Black-crowned Monjita and Hudson`s Black-Tyrant. Reaching even further south, in the Sub Antarctic Forest and steppes of Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, we`ll look for the rare specialties of this extreme land: Darwin`s Rhea, Magellanic Woodpecker, Hooded Grebe, Austral Rail, Patagonian Tinamou, White-bellied Seedsnipe and many others.

 

The first and second half of this tour can be taken separatelly. (Tours Southern Patagonia Parts I and II).
