    Tanager?? Iguazu Argentina Nov 2019

    Thanks, everyone. I had recorded swallow tanager in my list for that visit and had a reasonable image of one. These images never got an ID in my list. They will go down as Swallow Tanager thanks to your comments.

    Tanager?? Iguazu Argentina Nov 2019

    I hope I haven't posted these before! Two poor images of the bird, quite high in the canopy. I have looked through my checklist for this visit on eBirds but I can't come up with a match. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hummingbird, Iguazu Dec 2019

    Thanks all. I took a lot of images at the Jardin de Los Picaflores and have clearly identified black-throated mangos, both male and female, however that blue area has me puzzled. It's not like it could be any other alternative. I wonder if it is some iridescence caused by the light.

    Hummingbird, Iguazu Dec 2019

    Hi all, I have this down as a black-throated mango, but the blue streak from the back of the neck down the back has me having doubts. Taken at the Jardin de los Picaflored, Iguazu. Clearly not the best image! Thanks in advance

    Hummingbird, Iguazu Dec 2019

    Help! These hummingbirds are driving me nuts. The two books I have are next to useless. Ebirds is of some use but still I can't definitely ID this and some of the others. Is it a gilded am I being confused by the dark light? Thanks all.

    Thrush, Iguazu Argentina, Dec 2019

    Thanks Josh, I have very little knowledge of your birds and any help is welcome. Had a wonderful holiday in Argentina. Used Buenos Dias Birding in BA and around Ciebas with a guide called Diego Oscar. Great guy and excellent birder. Had another half day in Iguazu with the same company. Well...

    Thrush, Iguazu Argentina, Dec 2019

    Trying to nail down this thrush. Clearly a juvenile bird judging by the remaining chick feather. Taken at The Jardin de los Picaflores in Iguazu. Is it an Eastern Slaty Thrush? Thanks in advance.

    Finch/seedeater, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    I took this image at Costanera Sur in BA, two weeks ago. I have trawled through my ID books and have drawn a blank. Grateful for any help. Thanks.

    Birding near BA international airport.

    Thanks for the help guys. With the check in time for our onward flight it might be not 5 hours, but thanks for the advice especially about the website. If there was some confusion, sorry about that. I just assumed that anyone who might know suitable places would know the abbreviations.

    Birding near BA international airport.

    Hi there I have found that I have about 5 hours between flight at Eze and wonder if there is anyplace at the airport or near at hand to do some birding. I notice on eBirds there are two hotspots, one at the airport and the other at Reserva Natural Laguna De Rocha. Are these easily accessible...

    Iguazu birdwatching

    Hi there, before long I will have posted the full itinerary for my trip to Argentina on here! I have one day spare in Iguazu and intend to do some bird watching. We have a full day of sightseeing of the falls themselves, so can dedicate at least 1/2 day to birding. I have contacted at least...

    Bariloche in November

    Thanks again Josh, all the help is great. I have already contacted Guy about a tour in Iguazu, but have yet to firm up a definite tour with him. We are both excited about our holiday and getting our first trip to South America. I may well contact you again if any issues arise, but in the...

    Bariloche in November

    Argentina Hi Josh Thanks for your knowledge and advice. I have looked on eBirds for any hotspots near Bariloche and that's how I came up with the two sites I mentioned. I think a day to ourselves in a hire car is the way to go. We are on an organised tour of Argentina. I think we have BA...
