This post is dedicated to Alistair. Check out his incredible seagull shot & say goodbye to the last of my Patagonian bird shots!

Southern Caracara (an aggressive raptor with an up to 52 inch wingspan)
Dolphin Gull (native to Southern Argentina & Chile) It took me awhile to find out what this bird was!
Goslings (these were in Buenos Aires)
Magellan Goose (South American goose)
Southern Lapwing (only crested wader in South America)
Long-tailed Meadowlark (native to Southern South America)
The heron in my prior post is a Black Crowned Night Heron!
Fabulous. I will probably never see these birds in real life but it makes me happy that I know someone who has been close enough to photograph these birds. Hooray for Cindy and her travelling camera!
You make it such a pleasure to share. Thank you sincerely.
Love the color in the gosling shot!
Is there anything cuter than baby ducks and geese? I used to have an imprinted pair that flew back to nest each year. I wonder if they are still doing it & thank you!
I love these!! The first picture looks as though he is dipping his little feet in the water 🙂
The 2nd picture is brilliant and stunning!
He was gingerly stepping in the water to catch fish. It took me a long time to find out what the Dolphin Gull was. The red eyes were amazing!
Beautiful and amazing birds!
They really were beauties! Thank you!
Cindy, a few of these are just too good to be photographs. It’s like looking through a window at the birds and scenery. Great pictures.
Awww. Paul thank you! You make me happy with your poems, art and kind words.
I agree witht the others. These are magnificent photos.
Thank you Alastair! I will be frank your photo is better. I am working towards your skill level and enjoying every second of it. Your photos are inspiration to me. Cheers to you!
Thank you 😉 What a wonderful compliment.
The caracara looks like a giant chicken with an attitude!
HILARIOUS!! Yes he does and a carnivorous chicken to boot…..scary and very funny! Thank you!
What vivid color!!!
Cindy, I just love all your beartiful photos!!!! I really enjoy seeing the natural settings and all the colorful animals! 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.
You’re photography is incredible! Wow, what a talent. Paulette
Kindness is what these photos bring me. Thank you for yours!
So fantastic, you know right when to take that perfect shot! It shows in your wonderful photographs we’ve had the pleasure to see during your trip.
Thank you Mary. Seeing wild creatures has been an incedible thrill for me so I am glad you appreciate them also!! Cheers to you~
I have been to Northern Patagonia, but I really want to see the South.
Funny! Now I want to go to the North, Barlioche!!!
You caught some really nice colors in your photos. Boy, that Caracara looks vicious. Thanks for sharing your sights.
Yes the Caracara was very unafraid of people and quite formidable talons!
Very nice, but why are there 7 shots? Just kidding 😉 They really are nice shots, Cindy! Hope your trip isn’t over yet, because I’m enjoying vicariously.
I am math impaired so you scared me. I had to go back and recount! Hilarious! 🙂
All very nice photos — I especially like the Dolphin Gull, with the brightly contrasting beak and feet — so pretty!
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!
