REGUA, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: 23 March

Spent the day birding the Waterfall Trail. A 1st year female Shrike-like Cotinga (around post 1500) and a Thrush-like Schiffornis (very unusual here) were the highlights, and good views were had of a White-necked Hawk (seen from the truck), singles of Plain Antvireo, Spot-billed Toucanet (male), Black-cheeked Gnateater (male), Red-necked Tanager, Black-goggled Tanager, Blue Manakin, Black-capped Foliage-gleaner and 1-2 Spot-backed Antshrike and 2+ Golden-crowned Warbler.

The dirt road from the lodge to Casa Pesquisa added 2 Whistling Heron, 1 Grey-breasted Martin, 2 Burrowing Owl, many Cattle Tyrant, and many Black Vulture feeding around a dead cow.

The moth wall was busy this morning after rain last night with many species photographed for future identification. Also, 5 Channel-billed Toucan, a pair of Violaceous Euphonia and a Variegated Flycatcher were logged in the lodge garden this morning.
