I seem to be having more birding success on my work trips than my birding outings!

All of the photos below were taken in low-angle late afternoon sun through the glass of the non-opening window in my hotel room just outside the central Chilean town of Ovalle. First, some of what are becoming the "usual suspects" here in Chile.

Austral Thrush


the endemic Chilean Mockingbird


Southern Lapwing


Grassland Yellow Finch


Picui Ground Dove


male Long-tailed Meadowlark


..and now for an unexpected lifer, the Giant Hummingbird - 20cm long and with a 4cm long bill.
