Crested duck
The crested duck is a species of medium-sized waterfowl that can weigh up to slightly over a kilogram in adult males. Males and females have a similar appearance, with the exception of the males' somewhat larger crest. The mantle, back, and scapular feathers have dark brown outside edges and white inner centers, giving them a mottled look. The tail is clearly extended and black, with a light gray belly, flanks, and tail coverts.
Yellow-billed pintail
The head and neck of the yellow-billed pintail are brown. The bill is yellow with a black stripe running down the middle and a black tip.  The tail is pointed and brownish. The secondaries are blackish green, while the top wing is grayish-brown. The rest of the body is buffy brown with patches of various sizes of black. The species is occasionally mistaken for the yellow-billed teal, but you can tell them apart by the yellow stripes on their bills, their bigger size, and their propensity to form smaller groups.
The sole extant family in the order Phoenicopteriformes is the Phoenicopteridae, which includes flamingos as a species of wading bird. Two species of flamingo are indigenous to Afro-Eurasia, while there are four flamingo species spread across the Americas (including the Caribbean).
The guanaco, also known as the Lama guanicoe, is a South American camelid that is related to the llama. The second wild South American camelid, the vicua, which dwells at higher altitudes, is a guanaco. Guanaco. status of conservation.
Puna ibis
The Threskiornithidae bird family includes the Puna ibis (Plegadis ridgwayi). It can be found in Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. Swamps, marshes, and lakes are its native habitats, and the majority of its range—including the Puna—is in the Andean highlands. However, sporadically, it can be found as low as sea level. The Uru people domesticated it to produce meat and eggs.
California quail
A small ground-dwelling bird in the New World quail family, the California quail (Callipepla californica) is often referred to as the California valley quail or Valley quail. These birds have a six-feathered, curved crest or plume that droops forward; the sides are brown with white streaks while the males are black and the females are brown. Males have a black face, brown back, grey-blue chest, and light brown belly, together with a dark brown cap.
Oasis hummingbird
The length and weight of the oasis hummingbird are 11 to 13.5 cm (4.3 to 5.3 in) and 4 g, respectively (0.14 oz). The bill of both sexes is long, black, and decurved. The three subspecies are similar, with the exception that the nominate subspecies is larger and has a longer, stouter bill than the other two. The upperparts of both sexes are olive green, while the rump and uppertail coverts are cinnamon.
Red fox
The red fox (Vulpes vulpes), the biggest of the genuine foxes, is also one of the most widely dispersed species in the order Carnivora, inhabiting nearly all of North America, most of Europe, much of Asia, and portions of North Africa. The IUCN has classified it as having least concern. [1] After being introduced to Australia, where it is seen as damaging to the native mammal and bird populations, its range has expanded along with human expansion.
Red-backed Sierra Finch
Beautiful "finch," which is actually a tanager, located only in a small area in the high Andes on bogs and rocky slopes. Usually dining silently on the ground and without interacting with other seed-eating birds, they can be seen in pairs (the sexes look similar) or small groups. Although the White-throated Sierra-Finch can appear remarkably similar when viewed solely from the front, the contrastive bright reddish back is diagnostic. Immature has a more rusted-looking rear with hazy dark streaks.
Black siskin
Beautiful and unusual little sparrow native to the high Andes; prefers bogs, rocky slopes, and puna grasslands with bushes. Siskins can be identified by their black heads and bodies; their yellow wing and tail patches are generally hidden when they are perched but are quite noticeable when they are flying. Although the sexes appear similar, the juvenile has a buffy wingbar and an orange beak. Feeds among low bushes and on the ground, occasionally in groups of its own type as well as other small seed-eating birds.
