Jujuy to Buenos Aires Connection


If you want to twitch Rufous-throated Dipper before your Patagonia trip, this is the perfect trip for you. You´ll visit the classic site at Yala River. Additionally on the way to Buenos Aires we shall visit the Chaco near Joaquin V. Gonzales and Copo National Park, as well as the Ibera Marshes in Corrientes. Thus during four days, you get a very species rich experience with extracts from our NW Argentina program and our NE Argentina program. This itinerary  can be combined with the Arica-Jujuy connection.

Day 1. Morning at site for Rufous-throated Dipper and additional birding near Jujuy.  Other birds include Rufous-bellied Saltator, Torrent Duck, Dusky-legged Guan, Alder Parrot, Red-tailed Comet, Sooty-fronted Spinetail, Spot-breasted Thornbird, Rufous-capped Antshrike, Crested Becard, Yellow-browed Tyrant, Streak-throated Bush-Tyrant, Slaty and Highland Elaenias, Spotted Nightengale-Thrush, Eastern Slaty Thrush, Rothchild´s Swift, Andean Tyrant, Rust & Yellow Tanager and with some luck Red-faced Guan in the higher parts. Night in Joaquin V Gonzales.

Day 2. Birding near Joaquin V. Gonzales for Chaco. Birds here include Brushland Tinamou, Chaco Chachalaca, Spot-backed Puffbird, Blue-crowned Parakeet, Checkered Woodpecker, Great Rufous Woodcreeper, Rufous-fronted Thornbird, Sooty-fronted Spinetail, Short-billed Canastero, Gray Monjita, White-bellied Tyrannulet, Black-capped Warbling-Finch and Many-colored Chaco-Finch. During the heat of the day we shall drive on to Copo National park where we will camp. 

Day 3.  Copo National Park created in 2000 protects the unusual Quebracho forest Schinopsis quebracho-colorado. This is where we will have best chance to find the uncommon Quebracho Crested Tinamou as well as the rare Crowned Eagle. When the heat get unbearable we shall drive to Mercedes near Ibera Marshes.

Day 4. Ibera Marshes in the morning and drive to Buenos Aires. This should certainly be one of the highlights of the trip. The waterbirds including Jabiru, Limpkins and Roseate Spoonbills are overwhelming and the mighty Crowned Eagle is still quite a possible sight here. Mammals include Capibara, Marsh Deer and Howler monkeys. Star of the show, and probably the main target for many birders, is the beautiful Strange-tailed Tyrant.
