Directory of Photos in this Website

During the day, many days, we saw the Chalk-browed Mockingbird


After dark, we saw the Striped Owl
in Mato Grosso do Sul 


 The Jabiru was also seen in Mato Grosso do Sul.
This species is seen during many Brazilian tours.

Not seen during as many Brazilian tours is the Coscoroba Swan,
because it only occurs in Brazil in the southernmost state
of Rio Grande do Sul.
Here, the adult Coscoroba and two cygnets.

Also in Rio Grande do Sul,
two Yellow-billed Pintails.

An immature Rufescent Tiger Heron 
shows how the species got its name.


Also with stripes, a young Roadside Hawk

A Great Black Hawk in Mato Grosso do Sul

Two Brown-hooded Gulls on a beach in Rio Grande do Sul. 


A South American Snipe in Rio Grande do Sul.


Looking as it does like a "min-Hoatzin", a Guira Cuckoo.


A Nanday, or Black-hooded Parakeet in Mato Grosso do Sul. 

A Plush-crested Jay


A Red-crested Cardinal

A Rufous Hornero, although not all that rufous


A female Chestnut-capped Blackbird

And the male Chestnut-capped Blackbird


A male Hooded Siskin,
this bird photographed outside our hotel in Uruguay  


A Ruddy Ground Dove,
1 of the 3 species of ground doves 
that we saw in Mato Grosso do Sul 

And, lastly here, the rarest bird 
of our October 2010 Brazil Tour,
a Long-tailed Cinclodes.
This local Brazilian endemic was described 
only as recently as 1969.
Superficially, it looks a bit like 
the first bird in this series of photos,
the Chalk-browed Mockingbird.
Actually, when we found the cinclodes,
a mockingbird was nearby.
