When our local bird guides are not busy guiding guests they are out in the forest looking for birds and other wildlife. Last week our guide Adilei took several photos of a mystery bird he found near our lodge. Unsure of its identity, several leading ornithologists were consulted and the bird has now been positively identified as a Greenish Elaenia Myiopagis viridicata. Ricardo Gagliardi, who keeps the Rio State list, confirms that this is not only a new bird for REGUA, but also the first ever sighting of this species for the state! Well done Adilei for finding and photographing this exciting bird.
