BIRDWATCHING

It is the woodpeaker that is in a close tree around the lodge and is abundant in this area. With its red head and black and white body, this big bird makes a hard noise that can be heard from frequently around the cabins. As this one, there is plenty of small and big birds that give life to the silence of Patagonia.
