Argentina 10: Our final blog on our Argentina birding trip from 1995. I have also included a number of butterflies with the odd animals etc.
During the 3 weeks trip, we identified a total of 436 species, of which the majority were new species for us.

Ash Breasted Sierra-Finch near Humahuaca.
Found in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru with its natural habitats are tropical dry shrubland or high-altitude grasslands. In the non breeding season, it can be found in large flocks. On our trip we found it very common on the drive to Lago Pozuelos with 100 seen on the 15th and 200 seen in the vicinity of Laguna Larga and the return drive to Humahuaca. six were seen above Tafi del Valle on the 22nd
