Some comments about Navarino from a traveler:
Had a great day today walking down the coast road to the east along the
channel. I walked almost the entire day. There was quite a bit of rain and
wind. The harbor was closed again for the entire day due to winds in excess
of 25kts. The mountain tops were obscurred by clouds and, when visible,
I could see more snowfall up high. The leaves are turning quickly with the
reds now extending most of the way down to the sea.
I just love Isla Navarino! It is so amazing to even be here. It is so peaceful.
Thus far I've been able to identify 55 species of birds on Tierra del Fuego.
There is not a lot of different species here so I don't expect to see many
more. I do enjoy being out looking though. SO beautiful just to be out.
I did get one new bird today, the Red Shoveler (duck). Much like our shovelers
but cinnamon brown in color and very pretty. Still hoping to see the Forest
Chilean green parrots (Enicognathus ferrugineus - 36cms) on a Beech tree
that are seen during the Patagonian summers on Navarino Island.
