Birdwatching in Esteros Del Ibará

| Comments

Disclaimer: I’m no expert birdwatcher and have heretofore exhibited little interest in birding. However, staying for a couple days at the edge of Esteros del Ibará, a provincial park and wildlife sanctuary in northern Argentina, there were so many birds, and our hosts so eager about pointing them out, there was nothing for it but to go along and get excited about birds.

Here’s a list of what we saw in 2 days here (numbers correspond to the species listed in Aves de Argentina y Uruguay, or Birds of Argentina & Uruguay, gold edition).
