Spectacled Duck

Speculanas specularis

 

North of Punta Arenas, Region XII, Chile.

 

One of South America's rarer ducks, encountered much less often than most other Patagonian species. The sexes usually differ in the size of the white face patch, but there is no obvious difference in this pair.
