South American Snipe (Gallinago paraguaiae), Magallanes, Chile

On the edge of a Patagonian lake in Magallanes, Chile, a South American Snipe, Gallinago paraguaiae, rests briefly before walking for cover after a night of feeding in the flooded soil. Its highly specialized bill is a very efficient tool for probing in the mud, with a flexible and sensitive tip, capable of detecting worms and other invertebrates that live buried deeply in the damp earth.

En la orilla de un lago patagónico en Magallanes, Chile, una Becasina, Gallinago paraguaiae, toma un breve descanso antes de ocultarse después de una noche de alimentarse en el suelo inundado. Su pico altamente especializado es una herramienta muy eficiente para sondear el lodo, capaz de detectar gusanos y otros invertebrados que viven profundamente enterrados en la tierra húmeda.
