#Didyouknowthat in Chile there are more than 20 different types of wetlands, which represents 6% of our national territory. That 's right! and a lot of them are home to the Tachuris rubrigastra, or better known as “sietecolores” (seven colors). This bird is the inspiration of the #Santiago2023 Pan American and Parapan American Games, the largest multisport event that Chile has had in its history.

Over the years and thanks to its colorful feathers, Fiu has become the favorite of birdwatchers and photographers that frequent certain locations to capture the best pictures of these wonderful creatures.
In this sense and to commemorate this great day, we want to talk about three wetlands that are located in the Metropolitan Region where, if you have luck, you can be amazed with the “real version” of our beloved Fiu.”
It is necessary that you know that even when we recommended three places near Santiago, from Atacama to Aysén there are many more wetlands where we can find Fiu.
The United Nations (UN) declared February 2nd as World Wetlands Day and from #Santiago2023 we want to join the importance of raising awareness about these fundamental ecosystems, not only for our environment but also for thousands of bird species that, like the seven colors, inhabit these places.
