NORTHWEST ARGENTINA 2023

 

After returning home from Antarctica for just 10 days, I set off again for another great adventure. For some time now I have been wanting to visit Argentina. Argentina has some very unique habitats to visit like the Chaco dry forests, Ibera Marshes and the good quality Yungas cloud forests. So, lots of new birds to look for!

My trip really couldn’t have gone any better. I had fantastic weather and was able to pretty much be in the field all day every day for 3 weeks. And because of that it was a VERY productive trip indeed!

It was such a thrill to see some of the birds that I’ve been drooling over in South American filed guides for many, many years. What a thrill to finally get to photograph birds like the Blue-tufted Starthroat, Buff-fronted Owl, Rufous-throated Dipper and many, many more.

On this trip I was also able to create an image of something AMAZING that I saw in Bolivia many years ago. The incredible sight of a Red-tailed Comet hummingbird flaring out its tail was burned into my brain from that trip long ago.  This species turned out to be quite a bit more common in Argentina so I decided to dedicate some time to trying to capture this almost unbelievably beautiful bird. 

I hope I did the Comet and all the rest of the brids of Argentina justice. Argentina is a really wonderful country to visit and the food, wine and most importantly the people are all absolutely lovely!

I hope you enjoy this gallery of the birds of Argentina!
