Ruddy-headed Goose

Chloephaga rubidiceps

 

Northern Tierra del Fuego, Region XII, Chile.

 

The rarest of the sheldgeese on mainland South America, though still quite common on the Falklands. Red legs, rounder head, and narrower flank barring are some features that help distinguish it from the similar female Upland Goose.
