|Buff-bellied Puffbird from the 4x4 Trail at REGUA this morning.|
We spent the whole morning on the 4x4 Trail in REGUA where the highlight (for me) was a pair of Buff-bellied Puffbirds on the stretch above Casa Anibal. Haven't seen one of these for many years (Ubatuba in the 90's?) so I was very pleased indeed. A slightly less showy Crescent-chested Puffbird was appreciated nonetheless.
Barred Forest-Falcon, 2 Black-and-white Hawk Eagles with a Black Hawk-Eagle in the air together (!), Red-necked Tanagers, Rufous-headed Tanagers, Spot-billed Toucanet and a few Red-cowled Cardinals made it another great morning's birding.
Can't remember a better week than this in the Atlantic Forests (and I've done quite a few).
