Birding in Misiones & Iguazú Falls

Base, Pre or Post Extension

The Atlantic Forest (subtropical rainforest of Amazon domain) is one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in South America, with lots of specialties and endemic species. The province of Misiones, located in the north east of Argentina (bordering with the countries of Brazil and Paraguay) has the largest continuous area of Atlantic Forest, still preserving most of its original fauna including over 500 species of birds and most of South America’s best representative rainforest mammals (Jaguars, Tapirs, Peccaries, Anteaters, monkeys and more).

This tour comprises some of the best birding areas and most beautiful landscapes of Misiones province. Toco Toucan, Chestnut-eared Aracari, many tanagers and rainforest raptors soaring above the forest, are just some of the possibilities there.

Other species that we will look for: White-bearded Manakin, Band-tailed Manakin, Surucua Trogon, Black-throated Trogon, Blond-crested Woodpecker, Robust Woodpecker, Ochre-collared Piculet, Green Ibis, Spot-backed Antshrike, Buff-bellied Puffbird and Spot-billed Toucanet, among many others.
