Bandurria

Theristicus caudatus

Description:

t has a total length of approximately 75 centimetres (30 in). The neck is buffish, the upperparts are grey, the belly and flight feathers are black, and there is a large white patch in the wings. In flight, where the relatively short legs do no extend beyond the tail (unlike e.g. Eudocimus and Plegadis), the white patch forms a broad white band on the upperwing that separates the black remiges and the grey lesses wing-coverts. The bill and bare skin around the eyes are blackish and the legs are red.

Me costo sacarlas, ya que no tengo una cámara muy buena, así que me tenia que acercar muy lento para que no se asustaran....
