Snowy Sheathbill, Straits of Magellan, Chile

The Snowy Sheathbill (Chionis alba) is an odd-looking Antarctic seabird; it belongs to the small family Chionidae, which comprises only two sheathbill species, both occurring in the Southern Ocean.
This scavenging bird primarily feeds around penguin and other seabird breeding colonies as well as seal rookeries. During the winter migrates from the Antarctic Peninsula northwards to the coasts of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.
This tame individual was shot near the ferry crossing of Punta Delgada in the Straits of Magellan in late April.
Small numbers of non-breeding birds remain year-round in the coasts of Patagonia and the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands.

La Paloma Antártica (Chionis alba) es una extraña ave marina de origen Antártico; pertenece a la pequeña familia Chionidae que comprende sólo dos especies, ambas habitantes exclusivas del Océano Austral.
Esta ave carroñera se alimenta principalmente alrededor de colonias de pingüinos y de otras aves marinas, así como en colonias de lobos y elefantes marinos. Durante el invierno migra desde la Península Antártica hasta las costas de Patagonia y Tierra del Fuego.
Este manso individuo fue fotografiado en las cercanías del cruce de Punta Delgada en el Estrecho de Magallanes, a fines de Abril.
Pequeños números de individuos no-reproductivos permanecen en las costas Patagónicas e Islas Malvinas durante todo el año.
