Birding Tour Argentina: Northwest from the Foothills to Puna 2018



Where else can you go from arid scrub with huge cacti to Yungas cloudforest at 7 000 feet, to puna at 10000 feet, and to alto andino (high Andean) habitat at 13000 feet, within the space of days? You’ll see cloudforest wonders like the highly range-restricted Rufous-throated Dipper and Red-faced Guan. Four species of attractive Metriopelia ground doves, one of them endemic, can be seen in the arid pre-puna of the Humahuaca Valley. Spectacular rock formations greet you along the way up into the Andes. You’ll find high altitude alkaline lakes filled with three different flamingo species, including one of the world’s rarest, James’s Flamingo. Isolated pockets of finches, hummingbirds, and furnarids of all shapes and sizes abound. Marshes full of rails, herons, jacanas, limpkins, screamers, seriemas, and ibis plus the many splendors of Calilegua National Park fill you with wonder. One of the most charismatic targets on this trip is the stunning Rufous-throated Dipper. Torrent Duck, Andean Condor, and other classic Andean species are rather easy to find here. Both Black-legged and Red-legged Seriemas are usually found without too many problems, along with a host of other amazing Chaco birds that with some luck will include Quebracho Crested Tinamou, Chaco Owl, the sought-after Spot-winged Falconet, and so many others. All in all, this is a spectacular tour through Argentina’s famous wine-growing area for some of South America’s classic birds as we traverse varied, spectacular scenery. Need we say more?

What our clients say

Dear Chris, Thank you for your interest in the outcome of our tour. It is not possible to answer you in one note, so I will try to do so in a few ‘to the point’ remarks. Yes, the trip met all our expectations, and more! We saw and experienced the Cerrado, the Amazon forest, even better than previously at Tambopata, and the Pantanal with its amazing variety and volume of wildlife. For me the sight of a Hyacinth Macaw, which drew me to the Pantanal, already made it worthwhile. Then, of course, come the excellent sightings of the Jaguars and the Otters and then all the birds for which Eduardo made special efforts to find for his goals. In the Cerrado we stayed in an excellent farm-lodge where we were lucky to experience the sighting of the Maned Wolf and the Burrowing Owl (which was on Elzine’s bucket list), apart from a number of colourful specials like the Motmot and Jacamar. In the Amazon we were also very lucky to find another of Elzine’s target species, the Anaconda, and also another member of South America’s big five, the Tapir. We had an excellent session of forest birding on one of the towers where we could really appreciate the advantages of our private tour which, we think, was good value for the additional cost. Together with the Cristalino guide we had the tower for ourselves, and with an excellent guide like Eduardo also with us, we experienced a feast of good sightings. On EDUARDO:  It was a pleasure to travel with him again and having him as a guide who showed his expertise even in the presence of other local guides. It is good to hear that he also enjoyed our company. In summary, we came back as very satisfied customers of Birding Ecotours  and wish to thank you and Lynn for the opportunity to experience the Heart of Brazil. Regards Jacques and Elzine Smuts
