Silvery Grebe, Podiceps occipitalis, Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Adopting a menacing posture and trying to look bigger by fluffing its feather coat and stretching its wings, a Silvery Grebe scares away two other birds that seem too interested in the pile of aquatic vegetation that it´s been gathering to build a nest platform in a lake in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

Easily identified in breeding season by the golden head tufts and gleaming red eyes, in winter this grebe usually moves to the sea, where it can be seen in groups in channels and bays.
