Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres), Atacama, Chile

Ruddy Turnstone Rodrigo Tapia

 

Looking for invertebrate prey among the pebbles on the Pacific shore of the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile, a Ruddy Turnstone, Arenaria interpres, hops its way along with Littorina snails as silent witnesses of his quest for food. A member of the sandpiper family, this shorebird spends the Southern Summer feeding in the rich Pacific coast of South America before starting its long journey back to its breeding grounds in the Northern Hemisphere.

 

Cazando invertebrados entre las rocas en la costa Pacífica del Desierto de Atacama, en el norte de Chile, un Playero Vuelvepiedras, Arenaria interpres, avanza a saltos con los caracoles Littorina como silenciosos testigos de su excursión en busca de alimento. Miembro de la familia de los playeros, esta ave costera pasa el verano austral alimentándose en la rica costa del Pacífico en Sudamérica antes de iniciar su largo viaje de vuelta a sus territorios reproductivos en el Hemisferio Norte.
