Chiloé Island

Birding the north coast and wetlands

A full day of birding through the north part of the  island visiting the Pacific Coast on the west side and the prairies and wetlands of the north of the great island. The day starts early driving one hour to get to the south-west corner of the region to board a ferry for a navigation of 45 minutes through the Chacao Canal. This is the best chance to spot Sooty and Pink-footed Shearwater, Black-browed Albatros, Southern-Giant Petrels, Southern Fulmars, Southamerican Tern and the recently discovered endemic Pincoya Storm Petrel. Once in the mainland we will be checking the intertidal at the coast of Chacao and Caulín to find different species of shorebirds and in the afternoon we concentrated our birding in Puñihuil area, great place to spot two species of Penguins (Humboldt and Magellanic) among other specialties of the South Pacific Ocean Coast.
