“This year’s Northern Argentina tour was split into two, the first part in the northwest and the second shorter part of the tour in the Ibera wetlands. The north-west produced many interesting and endemic species among which Sandy Gallito, Chaco Eagle and White-browed Tapaculo stood out. Highlights included Diademed Sandpiper-Plover, Puna Plover, Andean and James Flamingos by the thousands, Zimmer’s Tapaculo, Lyre- tailed Nightjar, Andean Hillstar, superb Slender-tailed Woodstar, Golden-collared Macaw, Bolivian Warbling Finch, point blank views of Giant Antshrike, Torrent Duck, Yellow-striped Brushfinch, the iconic Rufous- throated Dipper and the endemic Steinbach’s Canastero. Highlights in Ibera included Strange-tailed Tyrant, Black-and-White Monjita, Mrash Seedeater, Crested Doradito, Red-billed Scythebill and the endemic Ibera Seedeater. In all we recorded 393 species of birds. Additionally, 18 species of mammal were seen with highlights of Azara’s Capuchin Monkey in the north-west and Marsh Deer in Ibera.”
