Observation details

The Austral Negrito was observed between 15 and 21 December 2014 in ASPA 151, in two different locations within Lions Rump, in the vicinity of groups of nesting Gentoo Penguins (longitudinal and latitudinal extension of both areas:58°7'38.30” W to 58°7'58.01” W and 62°8'2.71” S to 62°8'7.18” S). An individual from ASPA 151 was determined as an adult (possibly immature) female Austral Negrito on the basis of the presence of the following characteristics: brownish−gray crown; white eyestripe; dark brown nuchal collar; rufous back and part of the scapulars; whitish outer web of outermost rectrix; buffy white underside of the body; streaked gray−brown breast and sides; white vent and undertail coverts; rufous (or cinnamon) edges of the secondaries, two narrow wingbars and an area on folded primaries.
