Short-billed Miner

Geositta antarctica Landbeck, 1880

The Short-billed Miner (Geositta antarctica) is a species of bird in the Furnariidae family, probably the most southerly breeding passerine in the world. It weighs around 37 grams (1.3 oz) and is typically around 14 centimetres (5.5 in) in length including the tail, which when in flight is distinctively black with white edges. Geositta antarctica can be distinguished for the more widespead Common Miner by its much shorter bill and the absence of any rufous in the flight feathers. Source: Wikipedia
