Hi Erizzo,

Welcome to BirdForum!

I've never been to Chile, but it would be interesting to hear about your birds. One day I would like to get to see the Pehuén and Alerce forests in your area

Hi Erizzo,

A warm welcome to BirdForum from all the Admin and Moderators. I hope you enjoy your time with us.

I would love to visit Chile - and not for just the birds.

you should come down some time and see the beauty of our national parks in the 9th Region were I live(Temuco).
Chile has all the diferent climates, but not tropical.And in the north in the desert and altiplanno(1,2 and some of the 3 region) you can see more than half of the 450 or so birds that can be seen in Chile.

talk to ya later michael

Hi Erizzo,

Thanks!

"9th region" . . . I would be intersted to know how the numbered regions work, please - they are not marked in my atlas. A while ago, someone who went to Chile gave me some Pilgerodendron uviferum cones from "Region 11: near Puerto Aisén". Would I be right in guessing then that they are zones numbered from north to south? Are they the same as the named districts on my atlas (e.g. La Araucania, where you are)?

Michael

Hi Erizzo

not been to Chile yet but have a few friends who have just been in Lauca Park. Plus i helped out in the production of the Essential guide to birdwatching in Chile and learnt quite a bit about the place - hope to visit in the nest three years or maybe sooner.....

keep us posted about Chile....
