Birds Gazing

There are several places where we can gaze at birds in this zone such as: Quebrada de Guatín (Guatín Ravine), Salar de Atacama (Atacama Salt Flat), Machuca Village and Tara and Río Putana Lagoons. We can see a wide variety of birds depending on the ground and vegetation. For example, in the salt flats we can see Chilean flamingos – Andean and James – as well as Caití flamingos, chorlo de la Puna (Puna chorlo) and playeros. In the Altiplanic wetlands we can see guayatas, taguas and different kinds of ducks. Migratory cycles, feeding conditions, temperature, altitude, etc. are determinant factors to be able to gaze at this species.
