Birds in Argentina

We certainly saw some great birds in Argentina and as they often say, there were "too many to mention". That was indeed the case. But I should mention Greater Rhea, Black-throated Piping Guan, Red-legged Seriema, Toco Toucan, Red-tailed Comet and Andean Condor... On the woodpecker front we found 23 of the 29 species that occur in the country. Importantly, we saw the ones we really wanted to see: Chilean and Andean Flickers, Striped, Robust, Cream-backed, Magellanic, Black-bodied and my number one target Helmeted Woodpecker. This female Magellanic Woodpecker was snapped by Yoav near Bariloche.
