truly comprehensive tour very close to the town of Puerto Varas. We will start the day at sunrise exploring the area around the MaullĂ­n River looking for the Grassland Yellow-finch, Ringed Kingfisher, raptors and the very interesting Rufous-tailed Plantcutter. Later we will move to a off the beaten path Natural Reserve Lahuen Ă‘adi, the last patch of Alerce (Fitzrroya cupressoides) of the valley, looking for the elusive Tapaculos and some specialties of this unique ecosystem as the White-throated Treerunner and the Thorn-tailed Rayadito. While we will be crossing agricultural fields and grasslands we will be spotting different species as the Des Mur Wiretail, Long-tailed Meadowlark, the endemics Chilean Mockingbird and Slender-billed Parakeet among other including the Tufted-tit Tyrant and the Fire-eyed Diucon. We will conclude our morning exploring a wetland in Llanquihue spotting waterfalls and two great species as the Many-coloured Rush-Tyrant and the Spectacled Tyrant. This former dump is currently under a process of recovery and natural restoration in which our team is fully involved.
