Binoculars in hand to see birds in Bariloche

Bird watching is a growing category in Bariloche. The main goal is to spend a full day in contact with nature.


Bird watching is an option that earns interested in Bariloche and which has plenty of scenarios to marvel at. Victory of the Tower will be serves as a guide of this modality in the city of Bariloche. He said that his proposal was born from a concept developed in Japan years ago: the “baths of forest.” These consist simply of coming into contact with nature and assimilate into its details. “In the forest there is no wifi, but there is no connection”, assures.

From there, it led to the observation of birds, which have an active nucleus of adepts, both Argentine and foreigners. Many of them have extensive knowledge and experience with bird watching practices in other parts of the world.

According to Victoria, these are generally persons over the age of 50, well equipped and environmentally friendly. Bird watching requires “patience,” Victoria says. But also in the area there are places with success almost assured.

View and listen

In the steppe he often visits “vultures”, where they nest and interact groups of condors. It is also possible to see there hawks, Moorish eagles, and Caranchos, Eagles, Loicas and Flamingos. Another ideal area is the forest Municipal Llao Llao. In that case, the observer groups, always small, enter the “path of the Foundation”. The tour starts well early and lasts about four hours.

In that ecosystem it is possible to hear and see giant carpenters, cachañas, churrines and other emblematic species of the Patagonian forest. For example, sauerkraut, picolezna, huet huet, ruby picaflor and he eats sebum. “The passenger highly values the pristine atmosphere and is proud to identify and mark in their guide,” Victoria says. “They try to listen and see in detail with your binoculars. There is no obsession with photography.” They also tend to approach lagoons and lake shores, where birds abound aquatic such as hualas, barcine ducks, rubbers and others.

Entrepreneurship in full growth

The main goal is to spend a full day in the field, in contact with nature. Victoria generated her own venture, called Eco Joy Patagonia, with the support of the microenterprise incubator of the municipality.

It works only with small groups (up to four people), because the sighting requires “silence, observation and attentive listening”. Victoria claims to have seen the effects of climate change. In Bariloche particularly there were many alterations following the eruption of the Puyehue volcano in June 2011. Since then they “seem to have survived the strongest specimens”.

Wildlife sighting is a “growing” category. The motivation of tourists is to know unique places, identify flora and wildlife and enjoy the surroundings. The activity has a lot of land in Bariloche ahead and could be combined with other excursions. Floated in the river Limay, mountain biking, horseback riding or other forms of active tourism.

For those who wish to participate in bird watching, the It is recommended to wear a coat, good shoes, binoculars and camera. Is advisable, too, to upload a bird guide with photos and descriptions.
