Birding around Ezeiza Airport

I'm on a flight into Ezeiza (Buenos Aires) arriving mid afternoon and leaving early the next day next January and again on the return trip in March. I don't have enough time to go into town, and I've been there before anyway. So I've found some accommodation in Barrio Uno, very near the airport. From looking on Google Earth it seems to me that there's a lot of greenery and some lakes in the area. Since I will have the late afternoon free, I was wondering if anyone had ever tried any birding here and can let me know if it's worthwhile?

Thanks for your help.

I have not heared of any good place around Ezeiza. For sure you must be careful not to get robbed.

Agree. Don't do it if you wish to retain your optics.

You'd be much better off booking accommodation in the city centre and having a late afternoon stroll around Costanera Sur. Even though the reserve has been dry for months, there's still stuff to see - inc breeding striped owl and scissor-tailed nightjar.

For further details see the Neotropical Birding article, available for free download from the Neotropical Bird Club website (see my signature for URL)

Thanks for the advice.

I've booked a room at this place http://www.argentinabnb.com/berniesbb/berniesbb_eng.htm which looks OK.

I arrive in BA at 14:50 and leave at 08:55 the next day. Since it will take time to get through customs, I'll be jetlagged, and taking your advice into account, I may as well just spend the afternoon by the pool at the accommodation.
