Are you an avid nature enthusiast and passionate birder? If so, you're in for a treat in the southern regions of South America, encompassing Argentina and Chile. This remarkable part of the world boasts an abundance of unique and captivating bird species that are a must-see for travelers.
1. Strange-tailed Tyrant
The Strange-tailed Tyrant is a true gem of South American birdlife, spotting this charismatic bird is a thrilling experience. Symbol of a time of restoration, its population reached less than 1% of what it was centuries ago, but thanks to the protection of the gigantic Iberá park it is today protected and recovering along with other species in that fabulous wild site in Argentina, There you'll still find it perched on shrubs or open grasslands, where it showcases its distinctive appearance.
2. Yellow Cardinal
The Yellow Cardinal is a vibrant symbol of the region, thanks to its brilliant yellow plumage. Also threatened, today it can be seen in places near Buenos Aires, such as in Ceibas, one of the most fabulous Hotspots just 2 hours from the big city. Their melodious calls and stunning colors make them a favorite among birders.
3. Magellanic Woodpecker
Prepare to be awed by the Magellanic Woodpecker, one of the largest woodpecker species in the world. It is difficult to relate the incredible experience of walking in the Patagonian Andes and hearing the echo of their drums in the ancient forests of the region.
4. Rufous-throated Dipper
Imagine ascending from the Amazon jungle of the Andes towards the rapid streams of the semi-humid montane forest. Rare in general, but inevitable on our trips when you know where to look for it. Not only is it a target bird but it is the excuse to enter places with a very high diversity of birds.
5. Rusty-backed Monjita
Why, among more than 1000 species in this region, would we focus on this one without distinctive colors or shapes? We can give numerous reasons such as that it is one of the 20 endemic species of Argentina, or perhaps better, one of the 400 Patagonian species... but we have chosen it because we love the silent and vast Patagonian steppes where we see it.
