A final bunch of bird photos (I think).
Chiloe Widgeon. They were often out in the open, easy to see, with families, but I like this single guy hiding in the flowers.
A pair of Chimongo Caracaras, presumably a couple. The male and the female look alike, so I'm not sure which has claimed the high ground.
Crested Duck, rather drab, no bright colors, but certainly an aristocratic bearing.
More flamingos, but I like the look of this one, including the calm water in the lagoon and the whitecaps out in the lake.
Two adult Dolphin Gulls (bright red bill and legs) plus a juvenile, plus an Imperial Cormorant, all hanging out on the seawall at Punta Arenas. The water there is part of the straits of Magellan.
Southern Lapwings. Saw a lot of them, usually around where people were living. It seemed like their version of crows, but a lot more colorful. Heard their raucous shrieking calls many times.
Correndera Pipit. I look at this one and I can't help thinking it's the bird's version of a grouchy old man. But I love the photo.
A pair of Rufous-collared Sparrows. Saw them often, though they rarely posed so nicely. The male is the one with the red collar.
A Red-gartered Coot (again, who makes up these names), the weird bill and frontal plate, the rest so black you can't even make out the eyes.
A Red Shoveler. With a bill like that, I'd assume no one messes with him.
Spectacled Tyrant -- I get the spectacled part, but Tyrant? Huge white areas on the wings when they fly, but you can hardly tell when they're perched.
And Mrs. Spectacled Tyrant. They have the same eyes, the rest is pretty different.
And, finally, a White-Tufted Grebe, a tiny waterfowl (8-10"), totally cute. If I could choose one for a pet.... :-)
