Lesser Rhea (Nandu) (Rhea pennata)

On the Road (Ruta 40) between Argentina and Chile, January 6, 1993

We spotted Lesser Rheas several times during our Trip to the end of the World in Argentina and Chile in 1993. Our first sighting was from a bus along Ruta 40 as we headed to Chile from Argentina. We subsequently saw a few more while visiting Torres del Paine, and had one more sighting back in Argentina near Punta Tombo.
