Looking for seeds in a grassy alpine slope in Sierra Baguales in the Patagonian Chilean Andes, a Yellow-bridled Finch Melanodera xanthogramma moves among clumps of grass and other short vegetation. An attractively patterned finch of high elevations, it is found in central and austral Andes above the tree line, often feeding close to streams or springs.

Perched on a fence post, a male Long-tailed Meadowlark, Sturnella loyca guards over his territory in a Patagonian grassland near Punta Arenas in Magallanes, Chile. The vivid red colour of the male’s chest is one of the striking notes of Spring in most of the country, and their song is a well-known voice in the songbird assemblage in open habitats.

Stealthily moving among the vegetation in the bank of a stream in Torres del Paine national park in Chilean Patagonia, a Plumbeous Rail, Pardirallus sanguinolentus looks for invertebrate prey in the ground. This colourful rail spends most of the time deep into the shelter of aquatic vegetation from where it utters a loud whistling call, but sometimes walks right out in the open for brief periods of time.

Peeking into the outer world from the protection of its swampy home, a juvenile Many-coloured Rush Tyrant, Tachuris rubrigastra briefly explores the surroundings before disappearing back into the safety of the reed bed and parental care in a river in Chiloe Island in Lake District, Chile. A tiny and colourful tyrant flycatcher of wetlands, it is always a lovely spectacle to watch it moving and hunting among the vegetation.   http://bit.ly/1hGbe32  #birding #Chile #wildlifephotography

Groove-billed Ani (Crotophaga sulcirostris) Showing its iridiscent chest in the sun, a Groove-billed Ani, Crotophaga sulcirostris looks for invertebrates in the grass near some grazing cattle in the Lluta River valley, Arica, Northern Chile. Placed in family Cuculidae, anis are massive-billed, dark cuckoos of open environments that are often found near livestock, as they prey upon insects flushed by the cattle.
