HI all.

I might be going to Argetina later this year (nothing garunteed yet) but if it comes off I will be in Buenos Aires and will then take a weeks leave to bird.

Can anyone advise on good birding areas and sought after species in Argentina?

Cheers,
Doug

Doug,

I was in Argentina in 1996 at a geological conference in the western city of Mendoza. On one of the conference field trips I crossed the Andes by road to Santiago in Chile. This was in my pre-"serious" birding days and I didn't even have a pair of binoculars or a camera with me.

I did manage to capture the grand total of 5 Argentinian birds on video on that crossing - Greater Rhea, Rufous-collared Sparrow, Patagonian Sierra-Finch, Grey-breasted Seed-Snipe and most especially Andean Condor.

Argentina seems to be a country of great avian diversity and greatly under-birded. You might find the sort of information you require at this site - [url:3tmf0bmx]http://www.birdtours.co.uk/tripreports/argentina/[/url:3tmf0bmx]
