Birds – The Chilean Avocet

(R. andina) of the Andes of Chile is similar to the last, but has no white on the upper parts except on the head, neck, and rump. The Old World species are also somewhat similar, the European R. avocetta having the crown black or blackish brown, while in the Australian Red-necked Avocet (R. novce-hollandice) the crown is chestnut.
