I was afraid that crossing the Pampas from the Andes to Buenos Aires would be very boring. I was pleasantly surprised, because the bird life in the Pampas is fascinating. There are huge numbers of birds that you see along the main road. Most of the bird pictures on this page are from that part of my trip.
