    Default Black-faced Ibis (Chile)

    Doesn't get much better than this badass bird. It took two weeks of trying until one would let me get close enough for a decent shot, but this frame really forgave the wait!

    Taken on Tierra del Fuego at the southern end of the country.

    Wow Dorian, this looks pretty amazing! Great bird, perfect low angle, and the vegetation adds tons of positive interest. A new bird for me, glad you posted this!

    Thank you all for the kind words! Doubtful this bird has appeared on this board before, so it's great to be able to share something new!
