White-winged S. (immature and adult perched, adult flying), White-rumped S. (adult perched in center, flying on right), Chilean S. (adult perched in center, flying beneath), Peruvian (Tumbes) S. (adult perched on right, flying below), Blue and White S. (juvenile perched on left, adult flying below), Brown-bellied S. (two forms flying on left), Pale-footed S. (adult flying in center), Andean S. (flying on right), White-thighed S. (flying below Andean), Tawny-headed S. (flying below White-thighed), Chestnut-collared S. (flying on left), American Cliff S.
