South American Tern, Straits of Magellan, Chile

A very windy summer day in Patagonia; strong westerly gales reach speeds over 75 miles per hour and the Straits of Magellan appearance is unusually stormy. A large flock of South American Tern look for the protection of a sheltered rocky spit while many other individuals still fly around, struggling with the wind force. Late summer is the time for a new cohort of terns to start their flight training in these very difficult conditions. The juvenile terns are easily distinguished by the darkish appearance and buffy wash on the underparts. Many adults are also turning into their winter plumage with their characteristic snow-white crowns. Straits of Magellan, Chile - February 14, 2009. © Photo by Claudio F.
