World Wetlands Day
El 2 de febrero como todos los años se celebra el Día de los Humedales. El tema de este año es "Humedales para un futuro urbano sostenible", que hace hincapié en la conservación, recuperación y manejo de los humedales que se encuentran dentro o rodeando ciudades. Estos espacios se encuentran amenazados por la constante demanda por tierras para viviendas. Es un día de reflexión, de educación, de sensibilización del público en general en el que organismos oficiales, ong y ciudadanos comprometidos con esta causa generan conciencia sobre los beneficios de mantener estos espacios urbanos para hacer una ciudad más vivible.

Every 2nd February World Wetlands Day is celebrated. This year's theme is "Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future", which makes enphasis on the conservation, restoration and management of wetlands in or around a city. These premises are threatened by the constant demand for land. This day governmental and non-governmental organizations as well as committed citizens reflect, educate and raise awareness of the benefits of preerving these urban spaces to make a city more liveable.

Laguna de los Patos/Duck Pond11-1-18 © Eduardo Ibarra
The withdrawal of water is remarkable in the Gull Pond. In the Duck Pond the cattail beds not reotten yet are being exposed. We did expect this heat would cause this waer reduction. There is still a long way to go and prospects are not promising. A dry summer, caused by La Niña, has been announced. A few rainfalls which are forecast as deluges end up in showers. We must wait for autumn rainfalls to change this situation.

A flock of yellowlegs and sandpipers alltogether. Difficult to tell apart from so far. Yellowlegs, yellow legs extending beyond the body with short bill (lesser yellowlegs), with long bill and slightly recurved (greater yellowlegs). Pectoral sandpiper, yellow legs and legs do not extend beyond the body.

Sebastián Otero saw a white-banded mocking-bird just in the Middle Path at the edge of the burnt view in the Duck Pond. This mockingbird breeds in the northwest and central Argentina y migrates east and farther north to spend the winter. This is not an obstacle for a couple of individuals to stay in the area.

This saffron finch was singing on top of his voice and moving around the great kiskadee's nest and at some point it got into it. It is a male, the females do not sing. Viviana , who does research work on the saffron finch, explains to us that this male is in its first year that is why his plumage is not the typical yellow, but it can already be a breeder.
