Unfortunately, many birds species are globally threatened and we know it's our responsibility to help protecting them (and their habitats). Birding Puerto Madryn actively takes part in this mission by supporting Aves Argentinas and Fundación Bosques Nativos through memberships and donations (5% of our revenue is spent on donations for bird and land protection initiatives).
On our tours, we strictly adhere ourselves to the American Birding Association's Principles of Birding Ethics.

We really enjoyed birdwatching with Agustin on New Years Day 2019 -- in the Puerto Madryn/Chubut area of Argentina. We were visiting Patagonia from North America and he was able to show us a number of new birds. We saw 54 species of birds total. Some of our favorites were Burrowing Parrots, the Magellanic Owl, and King, Imperial and Magellanic Cormorants (nesting). Augustin is a wonderful guide. He is a nature enthusiast, knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher. We appreciated the time he spent with us. We were even able to spend a time checking out a hairy armadillo during our travels that day. We would love to go out with Augustin again someday and would definitely recommend this birdwatching tour to people of all abilities. He is willing to go the extra mile to give you the best experience possible. Thank you Augustin for an amazing day 🦉!
I did "long one day" birding with Agustin Esmoris on November 2nd 2018. We started the day with Golfo Nuevo area - the coast near Puerto Madryn and subsequently visited the valley area. We birded at diverse habitats - canyons, cliffs, lakes, and so on. Even though the day was less than perfect, it rained most of the time, at times bit heavy, we continued birding and for the most part managed to spot the expected species at each location. The catch of the day was 63. Almost all sightings were very satisfactory meaning I got a good long look at the species. Agustin has intimate and up-to-date knowledge of the area which is very crucial for visiting birders like me who have limited time (in my case I only had a day at Puerto Madryn). This was my first time birding not just in Argentina but in neotropical region. It was fun and interesting to compare and contrast habits and behavior of "old world" species and that of neotropics. Thank you Agustin for a very rewarding birding day.
Thank you for a wonderful day birding in the Puerto Madryn and Trelew area. Your knowledge of the local habitats and birds to be found in each area was extensive and enabled us to see some really great birds, with very good views of many. I enjoyed seeing some nesting birds and the Burrowing Parrot wall. You worked very hard to find the endemic birds in the area and other specialities. I really appreciate your efforts. I got 22 new birds for my trip list out of the 66 species we saw. Best wishes
Agus - thank you once again for such a fantastic day out birding in Puerto Madryn! Your skill as a birding guide is absolutely spectacular. Ted and I appreciated your excellent communication and detailed itinerary prior to our trip, your ability to identify every bird we saw, and your flexibility throughout our day together to take more time at some locations and less at others. We highly recommend your services!
