Video 1 - Tierra del Fuego - Most of our group arrived into Ushuaia a couple of days ahead of boarding Ortelius. As tour participants’ logistics worked out close to our departure date, we heard from a number of folks that they would like to take advantage of part of their pre-tour time to visit nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park. Thus, we hastily arranged a day-trip to the park to look for Magellanic Woodpecker, Andean Condor, and whatever else might grace our binoculars. What a fun and memorable day 1 February 2018 turned out to be! Next morning, we also squeezed in a little birding around the Beagle Channel near our hotel, which produced a handful of birds not seen elsewhere. (Video by Bret Whitney)
