Rufa red knots are among the avian world’s most extreme long-range flyers (especially in light of their relatively small size). They travel vast distances – some flying more than 29,000km – in the course of an annual migration that begins in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and extends all the way up to the Canadian Arctic (and back again).

Andean negrito (Lessonia oreas) is resident in its range, unlike its more southern & highly migratory relative the Austral Negrito (Lessonia rufa). It's also quite a bit larger than the Austral, although the two are seldom if ever observed together for comparison. It's very quiet, & seldom emits more than single noted “chip”.
