Buenos Aires and its surroundings is an amazing birding city.
When you arrive to Buenos Aires you are in one of the most important birding hot spots of the continent: you can visit local reserves inside the city or natural areas around. With more than 400 wild species, plenty of reserves and natural landscapes, it is also close to hotspots where you can find more than 100 species in a single day, including Limpkin, Red-crested Cardinal, Bay-winged Hawk, Black-headed Parakeet, Masked Gnatcatcher, Rufescent Tiger-Heron, Narrow-billed Woodcreeper, Glitering-bellied Emerald, Hooded Siskin or Masked Duck

This trip includes the Paraná River Delta (north-east), the seacoast in Punta Rasa (south.west), and several birding hot Spots between them.

The Delta includes wetlands, Pampas grasslands and different kind of native forests. Our favorite place there is Ceibas (south of Entre Ríos), where is possible found more than 100 species in a day (or more than 150 in 3 days), including Greater Rhea, Southern Screamer, Savanna Hawk, Giant Wood-Rail, Vermilion Flycatcher, Scimitar-billed Woodcreeper, Rufous-Sided Crake, Blue-and.yellow Tanager, Scissor-tailed Nightjar, White Woodpecker, and several tinamous, herons, ibis, hummingbirds, storks, spinetails, plovers, cuckoos and seedeaters. Among endemics, we'll have good opportunities to both species of Reedhaunter, and the critical Saffron-cowled Blackbird.

The second part of the trip will be to Punta Rasa, the geographical outer limit of La Plata river's estuary. Is the best placefor migratory waders (plovers and sandpipers), also wintering migrators during our summer (September to March). Is also amazing for birds of wetlands and Pampas grassland.
This is the best spot for migratory waders (plovers and sandpipers) and also for wintering migrators during our summer (September to March) which migrate from as far as Alaska.
