Regarding raptors, this fine destination is also excellent for them with some prominent species like the Savanna Hawk. Other birds available are the Striped Cuckoo, Scissor-tailed Nightjar, Nacunda Nighthawk, White-fronted Woodpecker, White Woodpecker, Great Antshrike and Yellowish Pipit. It's also a very good site for Monjitas, such as the Gray Monjita, the fairly common White Monjita and the Black-crowned Monjita mainly noticeable in winter time.
What it is very rare and spectacular at the same time is to behold the high volume doves’ roosts at the brushy area of this location which are really peculiar and none of the other bird watching companies of the country can deliver: we watch literally millions of Eared doves (Zenaida auriculata) at sunrise flying out of where they nest or we watch them flying back to the roost at sunset.
To see this amazing flight worth the trip by itself but if you are looking for not common species in Argentina, another highlight of a tour to this area would be an encounter with the endangered Black-and-white Monjita, or with the wonderful and also endangered Saffron-cowled Blackbird.
Any ornithologist, naturalist or conservationist would be in heaven among all these different birds.
Other threatened species that can be found, mainly during summer time are the seedeaters. The most singular of them are the Dark-throated Seedeater, Tawny-bellied Seedeater, Chestnut Seedeater, Rufous-rumped Seedeater and Marsh Seedeater. Another unusual visitor to this area during the hot months of the year is the Upland Sandpiper that is also going down in its population.
