Seaside Cinclodes (Cinclodes nigrofumosus), Valparaíso, Chile



Hunting for small crustaceans and insect larvae, a Seaside Cinclodes, Cinclodes nigrofumosus, inspects a pile of decaying seaweed on the intertidal zone in a rocky beach in the Pacific coast of Valparaíso, Chile. This member of family Furnariidae is an endemic species to Chile and probably the most maritime of Passerines (songbirds), as it never strays not even a few meters from the spray zone, where it can be seen constantly looking for prey and displaying on top of rocks.


A la caza de pequeños crustáceos y larvas de insectos, un Churrete Costero, Cinclodes nigrofumosus, inspecciona un montón de algas en descomposición en la zona intermareal de una playa rocosa en la costa Pacífica de Valparaíso, Chile. Este miembro de la familia Furnariidae es una especie endémica de Chile y probablemente el más marítimo de los Passeriformes (aves canoras), ya que nunca se aleja ni siquiera unos metros de la zona de salpicadura, donde puede ser visto buscando presas constantemente y exhibiéndose sobre rocas.
