The Esteros Del Íbera (Íbera Wetlands) is one of the most important wetland sites in South America.
Comprising swamps, lagoons, and numerous channels and water courses, the site is a haven for birds, particularly for those favouring wetland and grassland habitats. Located in the Argentinean province of Corrientes, a combination of boats, vehicles and walkways allow for intimate access of many species that would be difficult to encounter in other parts of the region.
A log list of birds include the Strange-tailed Tyrant, Black-capped Donacobius and the majestic Jabiru Stork.
In addition to the birds, part of the huge area became a National Park in 2017, allowing for the reintroduction and continued conservation of many of South Ameirca’s most emblematic species of mammals, including the Jaguar, Giant Anteater and Maned Wolf.
For a protected area so rich in biodiversity, and yet so unspoiled by mass tourism, Íbera is an essential birding
