The fourth post is of 13 of the 18 raptor species seen that I managed to photogragh.

The first three are no more better than straight 640x480 crops from the 25MB images, good enough for ID purposes but not great shots - but I post them as all three are lifers.

Cinereous Harrier [Ibera] this one an adult male

Snail Kite [Ibera] adult and juvenile

Yellow-headed Caracara [Ibera]

Thunderstorms overnight and showers in the early morning, but the weather did not deter this Burrowing Owl [Ibera]

Aplomado Falcon [Ibera]

Black Vulture [Iguassu] - dozens of these vultures "patrol" the gorge below the Iguassu Falls

Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture [Ibera]

Long-winged Harrier [Ibera] - the Ibera equivalent of Marievale's African Marsh Harriers, quartering the reedbeds; this is dark form adult

Savanna Hawk [Ibera]

Roadside Hawk [Iguassu] & [Ibera]

Plumbeous Kite [Iguassu]

Short-tailed Hawk [Iguassu] - adult of the pale form; I suppose I can add this one to both my Argentina and Brazil lists as it was circling over the bridge across the Iguassu River that is the international boundary! The photo was taken from the middle of the bridge.

Southern Crested Caracara [Ibera]
