We saw several groups of choiques on the Península Valdés. The choique, like the ñandú, is a species of American ostrich. Choiques are also known as ñandúes petisos or Darwin's Rhea. They are smaller than the ñandúes I'd seen in Uruguay, although they are still good-sized birds.

Rheacultura has maps showing the ranges of the two species, and lots of information in Spanish. Don Roberson has some photos and information in English.
