Snowy sheathbill in flight

Snowy sheathbill (Chionis alba) in flight. This scavenger steals food from other birds and will also take eggs, small chicks, faeces, and carrion. The bare skin on its face and the cover on its bill (which gives the species its name) are adaptations for keeping clean while eating messy food. It breeds on the Antarctic coast and subantarctic islands, migrating to Argentina and the Falklands for winter. It is the only Antarctic bird to feed exclusively on land. Photographed at Port Lockroy, British Antarctic Territory, Antarctic Peninsula
