Working on the canal for the rice
"San Juan Poriahu" is an old estancia located on the Ibera Marshlands, a vast extension of virtually untouched wilderness combined with the colorful land of the gauchos. It has thirty-two thousand acres used primarily for livestock. Almost half of the land is covered by marshes, and the vast wetlands of the Ibera Lagoon begin on its eastern border. On its varied landscape, which ranges from marshes to long, low hills, live carpinchos (large rodents), yacares (alligators), swamp deer, monkeys, nandues (ostriches) and the nearly extinct aguara-guazu (hairy wolf). More than two hundred species of birds have been recorded, including the jabiru, the largest stork in the Americas.
The main buildings are built on the crest of a low hill surrounded by woods of native trees and plants: lapachos, ibira-puita, gomeros (rubber plants), and ombu trees. A settlement of low houses of simple design, well adapted to the region, the three-hundred-year-old house was a former Jesuit chapel. It has small windows, and its thatched roof offers protection from the intense summer heat.
In the seventeenth century San Juan Poriahu was part of the vast circle of estancias of the Society of Jesus. The terrain was particularly well suited for raising cattle: it had fresh water and its fertile pastures formed a sort of island between the marshes that was easy to defend. Part of the old Camino Real, which connected distant parts of the colony, is preserved on the estancia. General Belgrano passed along this road on his way to Paraguay after the May Revolution of 1810 which led to the independence of Argentina from Spain in 1816.
After the Jesuits were expelled in 1769, the lands belonged to a local Spanish pioneer, Don Pedro de Igarzabal, and later to an old family from Corrientes, the Fernandez Blanco. In 1890 Angel Fernandez Blanco died heirless and bequeathed the property to a friend, Ernesto Meabe, a cattleman and distinguished public figure in the province. Meabe bought two contiguous estancias and joined the three properties together, calling the new one San Juan Poriahu-which in Guarani Indian language means Poor San Juan-because the estancia originally had no livestock. Meabe pioneered Shorthorn cattle breeding in Corrientes and brought the first shorthorn to the estancia in wagons from Buenos Aires. His son Raimundo, one of eight children, inherited both San Juan Poriahu and Santa Ana, a neighboring estancia. An active politician, he was also a progressive, successful cattleman. His daughter Ana Maria now owns the estate.
The Corrientes estancias, including San Juan Poriahu, have changed little over the years. The persistence of tradition is apparent in the ranch-hands' attire, which is so well suited to the environment that updating it has been unnecessary. The gauchos still wear the typical bombacha (baggy trousers) and a wide belt; their leggings are made of canvas because they often work in water and the climate is extremely humid. A deer or carpincho hide is folded over their belts and unrolled when they work on foot to protect against rope burns and kicks from the animals. Gauchos from this province also wear a kerchief around the neck in a color that indicates their political sympathies.
Location: Mesopotamia, the north-east region, in the Ibera Marshlands, Province of Corrientes.
The Region: The Ibera marshlands ("Ibera" means Brilliant Waters) are the habitat of the most amazing wildlife in Argentina, formed by a vast extension of wetlands, lagoons and lesser pools, located in the Corrientes Province in the Mesopotamia region of north-east Argentina. An infinite variety of trees, aquatic vegetation as the beautiful "irupe" flower, endangered species as the marsh deer, capybaras (carpinchos), bountiful fish and amazing birds, storks, duck, herons, sea-gulls, flamingos inhabit this magical scenery. It is a subtropical paradise and one of the most spectacular ecosystems in the continent. Watching the colorful 'gauchos", the land of the "chamame", rhythm derived from the polka played by the Guarani Indians first on their flutes and later on with accordions after the arrival of the Europeans and savoring the "mate" in its country of origin, the typical infusion sipped from a gourd with a silver straw called "bombilla", are all part of an exciting sojourn in this intriguing setting. This destination is ideal to combine with a short side-trip to the wondruous Iguazu Falls, the untamed rain forests of the Iguazu National Park, the fantastic San Ignacio Jesuit ruins and precious stone mines that lie at close distance.

the Rufous-backed Shrike
the Rufous-backed Shrike (Lanius schach) is a member of the bird family Laniidae, the shrikes. The eastern or Himalayan race, L. s. tricolor, is sometimes called the Black-headed Shrike.
tricolor race in Kolkata, West Bengal, India.It is a common resident breeder throughout the Indomalayan ecozone from Kazakhstan, through Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indian peninsula except eastern states, to New Guinea, found on bushes in scrubby areas and cultivation. Winter visitor to southern areas such as southeast India and Sri Lanka.
It has some resemblances to the grey shrikes, such as the Southern Grey Shrike, Lanius meridionalis, sharing the pearl grey head and mantle and black mask extending from the forehead, through the eye, to the ear coverts. An eastern race found in Bhutan to Arunachal Pradesh, sometimes called the Himalayan L. s. tricolor, has a black head extending from the eye mask to the whole crown and nape.
It is small for a grey shrike, but has a very long tail with rufous edges. The underparts are white, but with rufous flanks. The bill and legs are nearly black.
This bird has a characteristic upright "shrike" attitude perched on a bush, from which it sallies after lizards, large insects, small birds and rodents.
Prey may be impaled upon a sharp point, such as a thorn. Thus secured they can be ripped with the strong hooked bill, but its feet are not suited for tearing.
Its flight is undulating, but its dash is straight and determined.
This species is a very rare vagrant to western Europe on the strength of a single accepted British record on South Uist in November 2000. It has also occurred as a vagrant to Japan, Oman, Israel, Hungary and Turkey.
flight suits for birds
Airdate 10/11/09 Only the most extreme of the extreme sportsmen would do this: don "wingsuits," jump off mountain tops, and glide at 140 miles per hour to the ground. That's what Steve Kroft witnessed from some of the highest peaks in Norway -- "birdmen" diving off a cliff and free falling until the air inflates the wings of their nylon suits. Not to be missed: the sound a human birdman makes on a "fly-by" over your head at 150 mph.
