White-headed Steamer Duck (Tachyeres leucocephalus)
Near-threatened
User: cotinga  (See all photos - 25)
Argentina 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.

It's great to learn some of the history behind the photo in addition to seeing these incredible shots from around the world.
