          Abstract

          Aramus guarauna (Linnaeus, 1766) (Aves, Aramidae), is a heron that lives in Neotropical America and mainly inhabits swamps and freshwater wetlands from the southeastern United States to central Argentina. However, there have also been a small number of records of the bird in the southern part of Argentina. Here, we report the first documented record of A. guarauna in Chile, on the edge of the Ramsar site, Las Salinas de Huentelauquén (Canela, Región de Coquimbo). The presence of Aramus in this zone could be due to its great ability to colonize new environments.
