Birding Chile

From the arid deserts in the north, to the glacial waters of the south via its' cosmopolitan capital, pacific islands and beautiful landscape, birding in Chile can be breath-taking. (Its geography, size & shape does mean however, you are going to have to work to get those ticks!). Sources vary greatly but there are generally accepted to be 530 bird species of which 15 are endemic with another two that are ‘breeding endemics’.

Using Santiago as a base, several quality, yet varying, sites are twitchable in a day. Over on the coast try the Rio Aconcagua estuary at Con-Con for excellent close up views of the beautiful Many-Coloured Rush Tyrant. In surrounding areas venture up to the Penguin Rock at Cachagua as it also holds good spots as does the Laguna Peral site which is south of Valparaiso and is famed for its Black-Necked Swans.

Travelling in the other direction head on up into the Andes and to El Yeso reservoir to get amongst other great birds, in particular the endemic Crag Chilia, the must-see Diademed Sandpiper Plover and, of course, the magnificent Andean Condor.

To the north is La Campana National Park and Estero Lampa, and to the south lies Rio Clarillo National Park.

Away from the capital you have the high altitude options around Putre and Lauca National Park with its three types of flamingos and the scenic wonder of snow-capped volcanoes. There are various good sites around Concepcion including the massive estuary of the Bio-Bio River. Laguna Torca National Park, Lago Budi and Temuco's city park all top quality sites. The extreme south of the Country is also good, you will not be disappointed especially if you can get on a pelagic trip.

There isn't an abundance of birding data available on Chile, which on one hand is a shame, but on the other hand gives you the feeling of being a pioneer in the field of birding.

During your birding here, unless you are in a group, your chances of meeting any other birders is zero, but Chile is a very safe place to go birding and well worth a visit.

Information

Satellite View

The spectacular Puyehue National Park is dominated by the maximum diversity of Nothofagus species, under which a dense undergrowth of Chusquea bamboo conceals a multitude of exciting but secretive tapaculos. One of the most spectacular is the huge Black-throated Huet-huet, 26 centimeters of black and chestnut plumes, which has a scolding, onomatopoeic call and a bird which positively vibrates as it broadcasts its deeply resonant song. In the Park you can see the Ochre-flanked Tapaculo, which is another monotypic genus and endemic to the Nothofagus forest. You can find some outstanding species including a number of specialty such as Bicoloured Hawk, Chilean Pigeon, Austral Pygmy-Owl, Green-backed Firecrown, the much sought-after Magellanic Woodpecker (South America's largest woodpecker), the tiny restless Des Murs's Wiretail and the poorly-known Patagonian Tyrant. Higher up, at the crater of the Volcan Raihuen, you can search for Dark-faced Ground-Tyrant and the striking Yellow-bridled Finch.

Albatross Birding & Nature Tours

Website

People ask us why they should choose Chile for their next birds and nature experience...We say because it´s very beautiful, has great birds and is safe and easy to travel in. Chile is one of the most beautiful countries in the world with a physical geography that is surprisingly difficult to describe. A blend of New Zealand´s south Island, California and the world´s driest desert. Some 6,500 kilometers of coastline but never be more than 200 kilometres wide! As for the birds then get ready to find the penguins, albatrosses, pelicans, firecrowns, rayaditos, huet-huets, tapaculos, wiretails, earthcreepers, miners, shrike-tyrants and other unusual sounding species.

…On the plus side tapaculos showed well with excellent views of Chacao Tapaculo and Black-throated Huet-Huets in the Chilean lake district. The same area also produced several sightings of the relatively little-known Rufous-tailed Hawk and the range-restricted Kelp Goose. The far south was a great experience with flocks of Tawny-throated Dotterels, Upland Geese and Magallenic Plover the latter again being rather scarce in its usual haunts…

…We lucked into a good hotel in Porvenir, the Hosteria Yendegaia, where one of the area’s best ornithologists, Enrique Couve, offered to guide us to the much coveted Magellanic Plover on the nearby Laguna de los Cisnes. Just as well. The lake is vast and we’d never have found the bird unaided. Basically, drive out of Porvenir towards the aerodrome on an asphalted road…

2013 [04 April] - Marcelo Padua & Rodrigo Tapia - Chile & Argentina

Report

…On arrival we headed to the mouth of the Maipo River. There it was sensory overload with the sheer numbers of individual birds after several days in dry habitats on the Argentine side. Hundreds of Franklin's Gulls with their rosy plumage and the complex palette of Many-colored Rush-Tyrants were in strong contrast to the brown tones of desert birds. And the coast treated us to excellent looks at Humboldt Penguins and Inca Terns, while some time inland produced White-throated and Dusky tapaculos as well as great looks at Rufous-tailed Plantcutter…

2013 [04 April] - Stephen Blaber

Report

…The dreadful drive along the lake had been worth it! After some time watching these birds we returned to the vehicle and searched the rocky slopes for Scale-throated Earthcreeper. After a short time, one responded to the tape and our fourth target species was recorded. No other species of interest were noted, and it only remained for us to negotiate our way along the road above the dam and head back down the main dirt road to the Valle de Maipo and then Santiago…

we had a picnic lunch watching Chilean Flamingos, Coscoroba Swans, Andean Gulls and many others. Then there was the lunch we had at my friends' house, where we enjoyed the wonderful Chilean hospitality and some of the best backyard birding one could hope for, with great looks at Spot-flanked Gallinule and Black-headed Ducks while sipping Pisco Sours; or the explosion of life when reached Viña Del Mar, where the abundance of birds with thousands of Franklin's Gulls, Inca Terns, Peruvian Pelicans, and several other species was a refreshing treat after several days of birding in the Argentine desert.

...Other highlights from north to south included Chilean Woodstar, Conebill, Ticking Doradito, [Chilean] Black Rail, Magellanic Woodpecker, Burrowing Parrot, Spectacled Duck (numerous on this tour), Rufous-legged Owl, Des Murs’ Wiretail, perched Chilean Hawks, Ruddyheaded Goose, Austral Rail, White-bridled Finch and Band-tailed Earthcreeper. Not least will we forget Chile’s tapaculos (how could we?), from the huge huet-huets, with a Black-throated unusually leaf-scraping in the open in full daylight, and nicely performing Chestnut-throated, to the colourful Chucao, the bold Moustached Turca and protracted views of a perched White-throated Tapaculo in a tree! Added to this, the very comfortable accommodations and some interesting tasty local cooking and fine wines, coupled with a great bonding group of participants, lead to a hugely successful tour.

2015 [02 February] - Stephen Blaber - Southern Chile

Report

...Eventually discovered a ‘path’ going into old growth forest and the tape again came up trumps giving us short views of another target – Black-throated Huet-Huet. The call of this species also attracted Chucao Tapaculo, which we had seen further north on a previous trip at Altos de Lircay. These birds were so attracted by the Huet-Huet call that they were virtually crawling and jumping over our feet. Magellanic Tapaculos also joined in.

One bird stood out and was my key target: Diademed Sandpiper-plover is gorgeous looking, near-threatened and restricted to bogs and steppes of the high Andes, so birds do not come much more desirable than this.

2017 [09 September] - Paola Soublette

PDF Report

There are 829 species of terrestrial vertebrates in Chile. Despite high diversity of ecosystems, richness of bird species is low compared to other countries of South America. There are 480 described species of birds, 11 of them are endemic (2,3 %). The number of native mammal species is 160 of which 13 are endemic (8%). Among reptiles the rate of endemism is high, 50% of the 126 native species are endemic. Finally the group with the highest rate of endemism is the amphibians with 63 described native species, 72% of which are endemic.

What adventures we had in Chile! From the barren starkness of Isla Grande in the south to the vast, silent stretches of the Atacama desert in the north, from spectacular peaks of Torres del Paine to the leafy Nothofagus forests of south-central Chile, from the rich, cold waters of the Humboldt current off Valparaiso to the high, stony Yeso valley and the bofedales and saline lakes of Lauca, we travelled the length and breadth of the country -- venturing to within a handful of kilometers of Argentina, Bolivia and Peru -- in search of its special birds. We had exceptionally fine weather throughout, with little wind and only a single night of rain (long after we were asleep); even our partially cloudy days were few and far between.
