Afternoon birding around the most spectacular fall, the Devil´s Throat. We will reach that area walking along a footbridge across the delta of the Iguazú river and along the waterfalls. During the walk, it will be possible to spot White-winged Swallows flying over the river, Yellow-billed Cardinals singing from the reeds, Muscovy Ducks, Anhingas, Kingfishers, Herons… and from the balcony at the Devil´s Throat we will be able to watch hundreds of Great Dusky Swifts doing their acrobatic flight through the curtains of the falls to roost on the rocks behind them.
