Three lifers!

We are currently in Brazil as part of our Wader Quest and visited Pirapora in order to see the Pied Lapwings there. It was there that we came across our first new bird, Stripe-necked Tody-Tyrant. This bird is right on the edge of its range here, if not slightly beyond it!

The second new bird was along the road to Brasilia in Goias where Elis spotted these Yellow-faced Parrots by the side of the road.

 In Brasilia we visited the National Park and I got another lifer there in the form of Ochre-cheeked Spinetail.

Elis got a fourth lifer there gripping back Grey-headed Tanager which I had previously seen at Serra do Cipo.
