Antarctica Trip: Ten Things Antarctica Taught Me

And Antarctica brought it enthusiastically to the surface. Here's just a few of the species I can add to my developing bird-log: Magellanic Woodpecker (spotted during our hike in Tierra del Fuego before we embarked), black-browed albratross, giant petrel, Antarctica shag, snowy sheathbill, Antarctic tern, South Polar skua and Gentoo, Adelie and Chinstrap penguins. I must thank our onboard ornithologist, David Drummond, aka Bird-man, for his inspiration.
