Argentina Birding Tours

 

Argentina is blessed with some amazing scenery and birds to go with it. The northwest has some fantastic birding, with high Andes Puna down to cloud forest, where several endemic and regional specialties can be found, like Moreno’s Ground Dove, Rufous-throated Dipper, James’s, Chilean, and Andean Flamingos, and Red-faced Guan, to name a few. The northeast holds the mighty Iguazu falls, whose surrounding lush forests hold species seen nowhere else in Argentina. To the south of here the huge wetlands of the Ibera Marsh area are great for water species, including the mighty Jabiru.  Farther to the east the dry Chaco region with its odd tyrants adds to the avian splendor of the northeast, making this one of the most avian bio-diverse spots in the country. The chilly south is home to one of the most endangered grebes, the Hooded Grebe, as well as several austral specialties of the Patagonian steppe. In the center the Cordoba region is home to several endemics. Any of these places will allow you to find some of the country’s 1000+ species.

Testimonials from Argentina

I have travelled thousands of kilometres with Raul driving. I have never seen him do anything hazardous or make a mistake while at the wheel. His van is clean and well maintained. He has the good sense to stop and ask for directions when needed. He stops for regular rests when on long journeys.
Raul is very interested in birds and we were able to add a few species to our lists. He got very excited when I spotted a male Lesser Rhea with seven young close to the road. He does not compromise our security by leaving the van unattended despite wanting to join us birding.
Raul is very good company and has made great progress with his English.
