|Green-backed Becard. Not a great photo, but a good record for the wetland area.|

REGUA, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: 5 November
Only had time for a morning walk around the Wetland Trail and the Forest Trail today as we had a barbecue to go to this afternoon. Got a lifer in the form of a flushed Pinnated Bittern, and a Green-backed Becard collecting nest material is a very good record for the wetland area (photo below). 9 Masked Duck, 8 Black-bellied Whistling-Duck (my highest site count so far), 1 White-necked Hawk, 1 Aplomado Falcon, 1 Limpkin, 1 Channel-billed Toucan, 1 White-flanked Antwren, 3 Southern Beardless-Tyrannulet, 2 Variegated Flycatcher, 1 White-winged Becard, 1 Crested Becard, 1 Lemon-chested Greenlet and 3 Black-capped Donacobius were about the best of other birds seen.
