PERUVIAN THICKNEE Burhinus superciliaris


Two thicknees occur in the Americas, this being the smaller and less widespread. Not quite a Peruvian endemic, it just reaches Northern Chile, where this shot was taken, and is generally a bird of very dry country. It is sedentary and confined to lowlands on the west of the Andes.
