If we are lucky, we may found the Stripe-backed Bittern !
We will also visit the dry shrubberies in the hills around the lagoon, where we will look for few chilean endemic species as Dusky-tailed Canastero, Moustached Turca, Chilean Mockingbird, and the difficult to find Chilean Tinamou.
Others species here include Austral Pygmy-owl, Plain-mantled Tit-spinetail, Green-backed Firecrown, Giant Hummingbird (in austral summer), Fire-eyed Diucon, Austral Blackbird, etc...
