We saw a lot of birds on our trip along the coast of Chile, March 1-15, 2005. These particular photos were often taken from a long way away and most have been heavily cropped. Still, I thought you might be interested because the birds are unusual, at least for most of us.

Many thanks to Janet Zinn for helping sort out some of these birds!!

A Pink-footed Shearwater (Better than most of the rest of these photos):

I envy you that holiday! I can fully understand not dragging your heavy glass on such a trip, which makes birding a little difficult. I'm looking forward to seeing your other holiday shots, too.

Janet is a great resource (and inspiration) for all of us. In fact, next time I can't ID a bird, I'll save the trouble of looking it up and just ask her, too :wink:.
