Laetitia led a tour that began with several days in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. Her daily limericks featured the wildlife and geology of the park. The Long-tailed Meadowlark is a more colorful bird than its northern relative, easy to recognize with it scarlet breast and long tail.
Austral Meadowlark males’ breasts of flame
Put their drab northern cousins to shame
And you likely won’t fail
To notice the tail
From which this lovely bird gets its name.
