Part #1 of this List of Chile Birds, Tinamous to Coots  

341 species of birds have been found during 19 FONT birding tours in Chile. 
(3 additional subspecies brings the following list to 344.) 

6 of our Chilean tours included only the areas east of Santiago (in the Andes), 
and west to the coast (Vina del Mar & Valparaiso): these tours either followed 
the FONT Argentina tour, or were before/after tours to Antarctica.
17 of our Chilean tours have included offshore pelagic trips from Valparaiso.

13 of the tours included: the south (lake district); 3 of those included Chiloe Island.
10 of the tours included the far-south (Punta Arenas & Tierra del Fuego).
10 tours included: the far-north (Arica, Putre, & Lauca Natl Park). With tours in the far-north, there have been (with the exception of 1 time), pelagic trips from Arica. 

There have been 2 tours only in far-southern Chile (Tierra del Fuego) in conjunction with the FONT Argentina tour.

The (Chestnut-throated) Huet-Huet and White-throated Tapaculo were found following our 1997 tour by those who took a couple extra days to do so. They were at localities south of Santiago. The White-throated Tapaculo was again seen in 2003.

The Dusky (or "Andean") Tapaculo: during most tours seen, during a few heard only; but in 1998, it was seen so very well walking at tour participant's feet.

The American Redstart (an immature male) in Nov 1997, in Putre, was the 3rd record for Chile, the others being in 1986 and 1989.
