Laguna Blanca Another one bites the dust!!

7th June

The latest addition to my Laguna Blanca list appeared during the afternoon in the SE area of the lagoon. This bird was also seen the next day on the seasonal pond which is approximately 30 – 50 metres away.

The Yellow-browed Tyrant was very obliging parading itself in all its splendor as it hawked for insects along the now swamp like area of the lagoon.

I have since spent some time in the Museum with the PLT guys cleaning up and learning some new skills which included preparing a Rat and stuffing in so that it can take its place amongst the museum specimens. It was a long process but a very rewarding one when it was complete. Thanks Karina, Joe and Becca for your patience!!

I am currently with Paul Smith at San Rafael in the SE of the country learning some guiding skills and hopefully seeing a few new birds for my Paraguay list.... Update to follow!
