Surveys for Estancias:
Brief description of different habitats (Ecotone, steppe, forest, watering places, etc.)
STATUS OF THE BIRDS:
Establishment of a scale with the range of probabilities of observing different species of birds on the estancia, within the common parameters: common, scarce and rare (or not seen). This scale should include the time of the year, since an important percentage of the birds migrate north. GPS points on the estancia can be given for places where certain species can be seen, depending on their status.
IDENTIFICATION OF SPECIES IN THE FIELD:
Description of main characteristics: flight patterns, onomatopoeic song, etc. Setting up of birdfeeders and drinking receptacles in strategic places (to be maintained by personnel from the estancia). Offer to guide clients on birdwatching trips in the estancia and surroundings. Objective: To promote knowledge and conservation of species on the estancia. Enrich guest experiences with informative material.
