Rufous Casiornis, Pantanal 18 September 2008.
Couldn't resist stopping to pay our respects to the "Puma Pool" as we left Pouso Alegre. No Pumas this time but plenty of birds coming down to bathe and drink in the dry conditions. Bare-faced Curassow, Rusty-collared Seedeater, Lesser Seedfinch and best of a couple of Undulated Tinamous were watched at leisure this afternoon.
We finally dragged ourselves away from the lodge grounds and headed south along the Transpantaneira. Chestnut-bellied Guans and Long-tailed Ground-Doves were seen on the way before Band-tailed Nighthawks and Pauraques came out at dusk as we approached our hotel on the banks of the Rio Pixaim.
