I completed the fourth round of surveys in the Atlantic Forest on a chilly morning which had a sluggish start. Once the sun had risen the birds were in fine form with a full complement of lists completed alongside the transect walk.
An Eared Pygmy-tyrant was the bird of the day. Not for its rarity factor but I have had little opportunity to get photographs of this fascinating little bird. This species is found in subtropical lowland forests in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
A Grey-necked Wood-rail and a sighting of the now infamous voice4 completed the birds of interest. Voice4 is still being scrutinized and I hope to get some pictures of this mystery caller in the forests of Laguna Blanca.
