REGUA, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: 24 March

Our final day at REGUA. Birding from Amanda's Hide at the wetland in the afternoon produced 1 Anhinga, 2 Muscovy Duck, c7 Black-crowned Night-Heron, 1 Snowy Egret, 5 Great Egret over to roost, 1 Amazon Kingfisher, 1 Blond-crested Woodpecker and 4 Channel-billed Toucan. Elsewhere on the wetland a Broad-snouted Caiman Caiman latirostris was hauled out quite close to the bank, and from the tower, 1 Harris's Hawk, 4 Neotropic Cormorant and many Cattle Egret were noted flying into roost.

This is the first time I have visited REGUA in March. Not the best time of year for birds (although we still managed to see some of the REGUA specialities), but fairly good for insects and the moth wall has been very productive at times, especially after rain. I'd certainly like to visit in March again.
