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.

Parakeets, victims of illegal trade. They are tinged yellow with hair dye to be sold as exotic parrakeets. Since the feathers are changed in the following molt, the parakeet will recover its natural colour, but what about the skin, is it affected by these products?

The White-faced Whistling-Ducks are also seen in big groups. In the first photo, the largest group with som 130 individuals. As Gustavo walked from Brasil to Viamonte fe found other smaller groups. This is not the first time we find too many whistling-ducks. Horacio had already counted 195 at Coipos the previous Saturday
Sandpipers and Yellowlegs
Both on the 16th and 25th of January Ricardo found flocks of shorebirds flying along with ibises, lapwings, stilt. The shorebird flocks were very large with more than 100 individuals. They were mainly composed of pectoral sandpipers with some yellowlegs. Both have yellow legs, but yellowlegs' extend from the tail. The yellowleg has a white rump, where as the pectoral sandpiper's split. It is worth showing both the flock and pinpointing some individuals

Here White-faced Ibises and Soythern Lapwings moving to the left and after them a Pectoral Sandpiper and a Yellowleg. Look at the decurved bill of the sandpiper and the yellowleg's of the last photo. It seems to be recurved like in Greater Yellowlegs, but I do not see it too long. This is the big dilemma with the Greater and the Lesser Yellowlegs, tow species difficult to tell apart. Sometimes differences can be clearly seen, sometimes they can not.

This mockingbird breeds in the northwest and center of Argentina and migrates east and north to spend the winter. But from tiem to time we find individuals which remain in this area

This finch singing on top of his voice entered the kiskadee's nest. This is a male, females do not sing. Viviana who works in an investigation with these finches explained to us that this male is in his first year, so it has not got the characteristic yellow plumage but may already breed.
