Some look like they have white winter “coats” still, but it looks warn from the shrubbery. How neat to get to see all those far away places and lovely for ya to share them so I can see too:). Love Ya, Angela

    • How kind of you! Thank you. Your comments are very appreciated and you are right. All the dogs in Southern Ushuaia have heavy winter coats in the summer also. The summer is too brief for them to shed. Very perceptive observation on your part.

    • It took me quite awhile to find out what he was. I was googling Southern Patagonian gulls to no avail. Quite a distinctive bird. I was so glad to learn what he was. Thank you for noticing!
