Austral Negrito (Lessonia rufa)

Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, December 15, 2014

We saw a couple of these while birding in Argentina before embarking on our Southern Ocean Expedition in 2014.

It's nice to see they are called "little black birds" in Spanish. The male is easily recognized with the black and red coloring. We also saw a female hanging out in some flowers.
