Briefly coming out in the open from its usually secretive, dark habitat of dense undergrowth, a Magellanic Tapaculo, Scytalopus magellanicus stops for a second to check us out in Conguillio National Park in Araucanía, Chile.

A small tapaculo endemic to the subantarctic temperate rainforest, this skulking bird is rarely seen although its loud voice coming from the densest thickets gives it away if one waits and listens with patience.

Adopting a menacing posture and trying to look bigger by fluffing its feather coat and stretching its wings, a Silvery Grebe scares away two other birds that seem too interested in the pile of aquatic vegetation that it´s been gathering to build a nest platform in a lake in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

Easily identified in breeding season by the golden head tufts and gleaming red eyes, in winter this grebe usually moves to the sea, where it can be seen in groups in channels and bays.

Breaching the surface, a pair of Commerson´s Dolphin, Cephalorhynchus commersonii playfully approach to bowride a ferry crossing the Straits of Magellan, near Tierra del Fuego in Chile. 

A strinkingly-patterned dolphin, this marine mammal is confined to southern Patagonian and Subantarctic waters, and frequents channels and shallow areas.

Vidal, Far South ExpeditionsJust nine species of ground orchids are confirmed to occur in southern Chile's Torres del Paine National Park. Although the orchid diversity is not as rich as in tropical regions or in the northern Andes of South America, the southernmost species of this huge family are all endemic to this remarkably scenic area known as Patagonia and have great significance in terms of biogeography.

Looking for seeds in a grassy alpine slope in Sierra Baguales in the Patagonian Chilean Andes, a Yellow-bridled Finch, Melanodera xanthogramma moves among clumps of grass and other short vegetation.

 An attractively patterned finch of high elevations, it is found in central and austral Andes above the tree line, often feeding close to streams or springs.

Gathering around a spring, a herd of Vicuña, Vicugna vicugna take a break to graze on the vegetation near Puritama in the high Andes of Antofagasta, Chile.

Smallest and less abundant of the two South American “camels”, they are protected and their numbers are slowly increasing after centuries of hunting drove them close to extinction.

Belonging to a strictly South American genus with most of its species in the country, Alstroemeria ligtu like this one found near Puyehue in Lake District, Chile, lives mostly in sombre, damp undergrowth in the edge of Valdivian rainforest where it adds a touch of vivid warm oranges and yellows to the predominant dark greens.

Stealthily moving among the vegetation in the bank of a stream in Torres del Paine national park in Chilean Patagonia, a Plumbeous Rail, Pardirallus sanguinolentus looks for invertebrate prey in the ground.

This colourful rail spends most of the time deep into the shelter of aquatic vegetation from where it utters a loud whistling call, but sometimes walks right out in the open for brief periods of time.

Perched on a fence post, a male Long-tailed Meadowlark, Sturnella loyca guards over his territory in a Patagonian grassland near Punta Arenas in Magallanes, Chile.

The vivid red colour of the male’s chest is one of the striking notes of Spring in most of the country, and their song is a well-known voice in the songbird assemblage in open habitats. © Rodrigo Tapia, Far South Expeditions
