White-headed Steamer Duck (1) (Near-threatened)

male, adult
The Chubut or White-headed Steamer-Duck, only found along a narrow strip of the Chubut Province, Argentina, coastline. I photographed them in the distance with a digital zoom, but the photograph still gives a good feeling of life in the surf. Along with penguins and the flightless cormorant, the three species of steamer-ducks are the only flightless waterbirds and firmly committed to life in water.
