We have only visited two small areas of this large country, Tierra del Fuego, gateway to Antarctica, and San Clemente, a seaside resort on the edge of the pampas which is the easiest place to see Olrog's Gull (my last gull for the world). However, enhanced by the presence of a wonderful reserve, Costanera Sur, within Buenos Aires city boundary, I have managed to photograph over one hundred species. Costanera alone, if not dry, can produce over 100 species in a day, including the rare Black-headed Duck -the only parasitic wildfowl in the world. Limpkin, Herons, Wattled Jacana and a number of passerines are also on offer.The San Clemente area, as well as the gull, has many terns of which Snowy-crowned is a personal favourite; Dot-winged Crake, South American Painted-snipe, Roseate Spoonbill, Maguari Stork and several rare passerines such as Curve-billed Reedhaunter. The road between there and the capital is supposed to be a two hour drive, but a drainage ditch runs virtually the whole length necessitating constant birding stops for waders, raptors (especially Snail Kite) and others such as Southern Screamer. At the bottom end of the country Tierra del Fuego has the immaculate Dolphin Gull, Steamer Ducks, Geese and several specialities such as Magellanic Woodpecker and Magellanic Plover.
