January 2017 - some birds from Argentina

Today is a really nasty day in New York City with a cold, wet nor'easter outside. So, I thought I would post a few pictures from warmer climes. In January I was with Helen Hays and some others visiting out colleagues in Argentina while they netted some of our Common Terns from up here. On a couple of mornings I was able to get out to do a little birding in the area around San Clemente del Tuyu, south of Buenos Aires. Below are a few bird shots (in no particular order).
