We had one last morning of birding at our lodge, a working ranch called Pouso Alegre, before the drive back to Cuiabá and everyone’s flights back home.
We first caught up with Red-billed Scythebill, a most improbable woodcreeper.
Then these amorous Hyacinth Macaws began feeding each other, then later were audibly copulating for a few minutes. It’s that time of year.
We said our goodbyes to the abundant Yacare Caiman.
On the drive back to Cuiabá, an irresistible stop was demanded by this Capped Heron, a species which had evaded the perfect photo op until just now.
