The Birds of Patagonia

My recent post on Condors got me thinking more about the amazing birdlife we have here in Patagonia. Most visitors to Patagonia come well aware of the amazing mountains and glaciers, the vast windswept “pampas” or the weather-beaten gauchos they’ll likely see but, few realize they’ll also encounter a truly unique array of extremely photogenic birds along the way. Here I’m posting a gallery of some of the more prominent species we’ll typically ┬ásee on one of our photo safaris.
