Argentina Birding

Before we went to Antarctica, Ellyn and I spent a few days in Argentina. We enjoyed the city of Buenos Aires, but spent two days of intensive birding with Marcelo, who runs:

Birding Buenos Aires.

He was a great guide, and we highly recommend him! We did the Southern Entre Rios Tour including birding at Ceibas and Puerto Ruiz, and overnight in Gualeguay hotel with delicious river fish dinner.

If you're interested, here is the page about our trip to Antarctica.
