Steinbach's Canastero

Rarely Observed or Photographed

Viewed 7 Times

The next bird we saw at this stop was rare – a Steinbach’s Canastero.  When I went to load this picture into eBird I noticed that this species has only been reported 692 times and  120 pictures of it have been submitted (compare this to 21.5 Million reports and 183,300 pictures of the American Robin).  This is one reason why I try to take pictures of as many birds as I can when birding abroad because I feel like I can contribute to the scientific community’s knowledge base when I can share an image like this one of a bird that is rarely seen.
