River in the desert



6/21/2019: We headed south to the Rio Vitor area to look for the Chilean Woodstar. After some scrambling, we were able to get into the river wash to look for the bird, but there were no hummingbirds of any kind to be found. Giving up on that, we drove out to the beach for sunset.
