a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
The birds of the temperate seashores of South America...
Ashy-headed Goose, (Tic Toc nature reserve, Chile).
Kelp Goose (Tic Toc nature reserve, Chile).
Haematopus ater, 'Blackish Oystercatcher'.
Spheniscus magellanicus, 'Magellanic Penguin'. Breeds around southern South America.
Eudyptes moseleyi, 'Northern/Moseley's Rockhopper Penguin'. It is thought that 99% of all Northern Rockhopper Penguins breed only on Tristan da Cunha and Gough island.
Thalassarche chlororhynchos, 'Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross'.
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea. Meanwhile I am giving a lecture on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) on the "Sounds of suburban south-east Queensland".
