2010 Tour Narrative
For those who continued on to Iguazú Falls the birding continued to be enhanced by the setting.
The Falls were flowing with more water than usual. Rufous Gnateaters, nesting Blond-crested Woodpeckers, a Rusty-breasted Nunlet, a Short-tailed Ant-thrush were just a few of the line-up of species that we encountered as we birded forest areas in and out of the park. Our afternoon walking the boardwalks of the falls left us in awe of the force of the waters tumbling in and around us at every look-out. The sightings of the rare Black-fronted Piping-Guan and of a nesting Green Ibis also made this walk a successful birding excursion. Confiding and entertaining Brown Capuchin monkeys drew our attention away from the birds with each encounter on forest trails. The scream ‘there it is’ will linger in our minds for a long-time to come and a viewing of Garganta del Diablo at Iguazú falls under an almost full moon may well have been the experience of the tour. An incredible ending to a superb trip to Argentina. Judy Davis
