The birds were interesting enough, though, that I was willing to overlook the smell in order to gaze at Southern Cara Caras and Andean Ruddy Ducks. Before our trip to the Pantanal I definitely thought birding was a pretty nerdy pastime and made fun of those who spent their time walking through the woods making friends with the avian species. I am, however, now a convert and also ...
