Work took me on a 450km drive north of Santiago this past week - just got back this afternoon. On Monday evening I arrived at the hotel a little east of the small town of Monte Patria just in time to grab a few shots in the hotel garden in low angle light as the sun dipped behind the mountains.

Tufted Tit-Tyrant


male Green-backed Firecrown - Chile's commonest hummingbird


On Thursday at one of our projects in the Andes I managed a just acceptable shot through waving grass of a male Mourning Sierra Finch


On the way back today I stopped off at Playa Chigualoco, one of the few places that the Pan-American Highway touches the coast. I have passed this way a few times before only to be confronted with the crashing waves of a high tide. Today I was a little luckier, getting some good shots of.....

White-backed Stilt - juvenile to left of first shot




the hudsonicus (North American) sub-species of the Common Whimbrel




Africa has two oystercatchers -the black African Oystercatcher and the visiting black and white European Oystercatcher. South America has its black and white counterpart, the American Oystercatcher, which I have posted previously, and a black counterpart and today's lifer the Blackish Oystercatcher
