      A few still live on the remote coasts of Tierra del Fuego, and though warrahs and gauchos vanished from the Falklands soon after Darwin's visit, striated caracaras still cling to life on the archipelago's outer islands, where they hunt and scavenge in colonies of penguins, seals, and albatrosses.
