Southern Lapwing (Vanellus chilensis)

Costa Rica, 2023 and Argentina, December, 2014

We first saw this bird in Tierra del Fuego NP, Argentina before embarking on our Southern Ocean Expedition in 2014.

We subsequently spotted another pair of them on the Rio Napo in Ecuador during our Amazonian Rainforest Adventure in 2019.

And I got a nice photo of one on the Sierpe River during my Photo Safari in Costa Rica in December 2023.
