South American list so far

As you know I missed my opportunity to go birding in BA.  Big bummer.  But I have been plugging away it every-time I went ashore Uruguay.     There are quite a number of birders aboard too;  so we swap sightings, bird books and past travels.  They have all been to Antarctica.  I am going to seriously consider that for the near future.  Our stop in Itajai Brazil has been cancelled due to the local authorities and their interpretation of some law.  So I guess we will be another day at sea, pitching and tossing in the waves.  sigh.
