New Birding Guides for Argentina

Oct 2011

By: Laura Crawford Williams

Santiago and Juan Cruz Padilla are working to create a brand-new series of field guides for the identification of birds, birds’ nests, and eggs in Argentina. They are the authors, editors, photographers, and producers of the series.

Santiago and Juan Cruz Padilla with German and our guide, Joaquín Altuna at Estancia Punta Caballos.


We met in December at Estancia Punta Caballos (owned by Ramón Segura) in the Entre Rios Province where they presented a nearly completed draft of the first guide in the series. It is beautifully designed and photographed. During the meeting, they asked if I would help with the photography for the rest of the series. Of course!
