|Upland Geese Chloephaga picta near Punta Arenas.|
This species is dramatically sexually dimorphic; males are black and white with black legs,
while females are rusty brown with orange legs.
|The barred morph has densely black-barred breast and belly. It is commonest around|
the Strait of Magellan, including on Tierra del Fuego.
This one was on Isla Magdalena, which is a Chilean island in the famous strait.
|The white-breasted form becomes commoner further north - this is in |
Torres del Paine National Park.
