Ocellated Bamboowren

San Sebastian is home to a feast of birds.  Some, like Common Tody Flycatcher, Scaled Dove and Masked Water Tyrant are not seen anywhere else in Argentina .

From the lodge we can see Short-tailed Nighthawks swoop down to drink at dusk.  Behind, the forest is bustling with Rusty-breasted Nunlet, Ochre-faced Tody Flycatcher,  Robust Woodpecker and Black-throated Trogon.  The plaintive cry of Collared Forest-Falcon at dawn may alert us to the presence of this elusive raptor and benches have been thoughtfully placed for observation of Red-ruffed Fruitcrow and Plovercrest leks..

Other speciality birds here are Ocellated Bamboowren, Variegated Antpitta, Speckle-breasted Antpitta and down at the feeders,  Yellow-browed Woodpeckers together with Plush-crested Jays, Violet-capped Woodnymph and Blackish Rail.
