While she is away I will post one of her superb photos of Brazilian birds every day. Partly to lament what I am missing out there, and partly to let her know I am thinking of her battling the powers that be alone, and of course I miss her, after all we are virtually joined at the hip these days.
So here comes the first of (I hope) not too many. One of my favourite birds in the Atlantic forest and a bird I always enjoyed seeing and hearing. I derived a great deal of pleasure from showing this bird to my friends and clients, their reactions to this little gem were always rewarding; Fork-tailed Pygmy-Tyrant.
