South American Trip – Part 4: El Calafate backcountry excursion

Wednesday, March 19:

We woke up Wednesday morning, breakfasted in the dark due to a power outage, then I walked around Kau Yatun’s grounds and enjoyed the lawn birding, which in addition to the South American Snipes, Upland Geese, and Southern Lapwings, included a few Ashy-headed Geese (LIFER!), and a Bar-winged Cinclodes (LIFER!)
