Bird Survey organized by the COARECS - April 14th, 2018
This Saturday was a beautiful day. A bit windy early in the morning, but sunny and warm. The group of observers was small, but we did our best to cover the whole reserve. As usual independent observers also contributed with a grain of sand.
The result till midday was 93 species and up to now 103.

The chalk-browed mockingbird ran after the urutu pit viper, always from behind. The viper did not bother. Unluckily some visitors got near and the mockingbird left.
