Several people responded to my question about a bird app for Southern 
Argentina/Chile, so I'd just like to let them know that I did see quite a few 
birds at Ushuaia, including the attractive Black-faced Ibis, and although we 
couldn't get within helicopter range of the Emperor Penguin colony because of 
pack ice, I did see 4 individual birds on icebergs.  The captain stopped the 
ship for two of them so that we could enjoy those Emperor Penguins for a time.  
 One bird certainly towered over the two Adelies on the same piece of ice.

Thanks again to those who responded.
