From there will go to Ceibas (2 hour from BA), a birdlife-rich área located in the meeting of the northern Parana River Delta, Pampas’ grasslands and the xerophytic thorny Woods of the “Espinal” ecoregion. In this array of habitats we will search in this special combination of habitats that includes more than 350 bird species, those species that are not possible to be seen during the rest of the trip. In September its diversity is plenty of species including migrants. Local list includes reedhaunters, warbling-finches, several not common furnarids (Asthenes, Phacellodomus, Certhiaxis, etc), hawks, woodpeckers and the local star: Yellow Cardinal. A short “owning” after dinner cold be opportunity for Scissor-tailed Nightjar.
Accommodation in Ceibas.

Typical birds are Red-winged Tinamou, Striped Cuckoo, Red-rumped Warbling-Finch, White Woodpecker and Diademed Tanager among many.
Accommodation in Concordia (1 hour North of El Palmar), still in Entre Ríos Province.


Early departure northwards Curuzú Cuatiá, in Corrientes Province, with stops in the way. Well, arrive in a private cattle ranch where we’ll have opportunities for birding there going to a stream bordered by forest.  In the area will be possible find species such as Spotted Tinamou, Whistling Heron, Campo flicker, Savannah Hawk, Cardinals and Tyrants.

The accommodation will be in Curuzú Cuatiá.


Drive along a dirt road across campos’ habitats and wetlands towards Santo Tomé. During the drive we might see groups of Greater Rheas, as well as White-broaded Blackbird, Plumbeous Ibis, Scimitar-billed Woodcreeper, Checkered Woodpecker, or Suiriri Flycatcher, lark-like Brushrunner, Blue-and-yellow Tanager, Lesser Grass-Finch and some species of seedeaters, among many others.
