We flew over the Nazca lines last month.
I'm currently organizing my pictures and I don't recognize this one:

Which figure is this?

  • Do you have coincidentally the coordinates? – Thorsten S. Jul 1 '17 at 20:53
  • Which lines did you see before and after of this? – artptr Jul 1 '17 at 21:15
  • @ThorstenS. No, sorry – Jan Doggen Jul 1 '17 at 21:23
  • @artptr Before: heron. After: parrot. (if the order of my pictures is still intact) – Jan Doggen Jul 1 '17 at 21:28

Seems I found it: https://www.google.com/maps/@-14.6854788,-75.1105134,200m/data=!3m1!1e3 (looks a little more quality on Bing, but I don't know how to get a link). The Parrot is to South-East from it. The Heron Bird is very poorly visible to North-West.

The figure

The most full map of lines that I found is Nazca lines map

On this map Alcatraz Heron Bird named as Flamingo, and your figure named as Frigate Bird.

BTW, I surprised at several points:

  1. I don't know why a two-circled figure near the bird's tale isn't present on aerial photos.

  2. I didn't find any official and accurate lines map. Google and Bing maps don't provide the Nazca area in details too.

  • Thank you; definitely the frigate bird. Look here or here – Jan Doggen Jul 2 '17 at 8:02
  • You say two-circled figure near the bird's tale. But what if it's the other way around and that's actually the head? I also haven't found a photo yet where that is visible. – Jan Doggen Jul 2 '17 at 8:06
