If you are into bird watching and like to see some flamingos you can spend few hours at Laguna Nimez while in El Calafate. You can also head to El Chalten, three hours by bus. You can also cross border and visit Torres del Paine, five hours away.

no more than one FULL day for PM Glacier (do everything you want there in the one day), plus a half day for shopping and birds. You could also take one of the more expensive activity tours to places like Estancia Cristina or Uspala Glacier on another full day.

Lots of posts on this with further details if you search.
