Eastern Wetlands Tour

4 nights

Uruguay brings on several features that make birdwatching activity very enjoyable and productive. In short distances many different environments are involved, resulting in a great diversity of birds. The wetlands that we will visit on this tour are protected and take part in the RAMSAR Convention. They are very important for migrant species that arrive every year during summer and winter, from North and South of the continent. The hotspots for birdwatching on this tour are the Important Bird Areas (IBAs -BirdLife International) Wetlands of Maldonado, José Ignacio Lagoon, Castillos Lagoon and the Wetlands of Rocha; and the Santa Teresa National Park. In this areas are found endangered species like the Marsh Seedeater, Black-and-white Monjita, Saffron-cowled Blackbird and Stright-billed Reedhaunter.
