Excelent views of the reserve from the plane. White dots seem to be wood storks
Bird Survey organized by the COARECS - Saturday, March 25th
A very nice day to count birds. See the results.

The top bird without any doubt was the osprey. Though this eagle had been seen a few times a long time ago this is the first photographic record of it.
The Coypu Pond was completely covered with floating vegetation from side to side. Wood Storks, spoonbills and the Chilean Wigeon which delighted us with their presence left the pond. Wood Storks flied past

To crown yesterday's outing this eagle marvelled the group of Simón, Ricardo, Dina, Juan Carlos and Ignacio by appearing almost over the new viewpoint. Pablo Serur identified it.
Simón says that "At 6.45 pm we were going back along the Lizard Path to the Viamonte Access. We had already passed the new viewpoint and were about to reach the exit. Flying very high from south to north I see something gliding over the Coypu Pond. So little flapping called my eye. To get a shot we looked for openings in the vegetation and daylight was already vanishing. We saw the image and it was not a caracara, but we could not take two photos in a row. The phot shows the bird almost flying above us. It flew straight, parallel to the Coypu Pond."

With yellow-billed teal on the left

The Chiloe wigeon has few sightings concentrated in winter. More abundant in the south it migrates to the north at that time. It appeared in groups and stayed a very short time in the reserve.
This solitary individual arrived on the 20th of January approximately and after a month and a half it is still here. It shares the islets with other anatids, in this case it is with white-faced whistling-ducks and yellow-billed teals. Good opportunity to compare sizes. The voices heard in the video are white-faced whistling-Ducks'
