We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
American Golden Plover
This Plover is a migrant that breeds in the Northern Hemisphere and comes to South America in our spring/summer. We spotted this bird in cattle fields near to our reserve in November 2012 and were able to take a photo of it although the quality is poor.
It measures about 22cm, has white streaked underparts and a white supercilium. Back and wings are dark brown with some spotting and a dark cap. We only see the non-breeding plumage here in Argentina.
