Fitz Roy: Chicken Hawk


Patagonia boasts an expansive array of birds, the diverse range of aves something we definitely admire.

But, this campsite companion takes the cake, part hawk, part chicken, part dinosaur, bold and prominent, a fast little sucker that prefers a run through camp over a fly-by, strong legs scurrying its thick plumes and orange pink beak away from human but towards our trash.

Someone calls them chicken hawks, and, why not, they certainly behave like the Loony Tunes big bird.

Curious little buggers.
