Another week rolls on at Laguna Blanca!

One of the most noticeable events in the last week is the movement of flocks of Picazuro Pigeon. Numbers have reached c647 today 20th. This may coincide with one of the soy fields having been harvested. A large group were observed feeding in the Cornfield a few days ago.

There have been some interesting sightings on the reserve of late including a pair of very obliging Chestnut-eared Aracari who were feeding on fruits at the back of the house.

Great White Egret has been another frequent sight flying over the Cerrado and Lagoon. A group of Snowy Egret were spied on the 16th. The Pied-billed Grebe has remained preferring the lagoon which is increasing in size at the end of every storm.

I recently added White-rumped Monjita, Lineated Woodpecker and Blue Dacnis to my year total which stands at a healthy 124 species during my two months on the reserve.

The weekends forecast indicates more rain but temperatures are remaining around the 20c mark a combination of which keeps the birds active for most of the day.
