Birds In Chile - Decent Shots

Discussion in 'Birds' started by bobhoge, Apr 4, 2005.

  1. We took a lot of bird photos durning our trip up the coast of Chile, March 1-15, 2005. Here are some of the decent ones:

    A pair of Crested Caracara's:

    One of our Naturalists on the ship found this Wilson's Storm Petrel on deck. He took it to his cabin to warm it and dry it out. Back on deck he showed it to us before releasing it. I read there are more Wilson's Storm Petrels than any other kind of bird:

    A little rainforest bird, a Chucao Tapaculo (pronounced CHEW-COW). It had a really loud call for such a little bird:

  2. Very nice Bob & Nan!

    I've been enjoying all your posts from your recent trip. It's neat to see not only the unique birds, but the slightly different varieties than the ones we've seen more locally.

    Thanks for posting!
