Eduardo tells us hw found these fresh xcrements on the Willow Path He says they are unmistakable in this time of the year for the size and the presence of Chinese privet seeds. This is another way to recognize the presence of this bird.

Marco tells his experience with the owl. "I was completely shocked to see this owl. After a while I see the bird rock. At the very beginning I thought it was normal (I knew nothing about owl behaviour) that it was sleeping and gave little importance to it. But suddenly, it rocked too much and fell on the ground. There was no one in the cabin so I went to the nursery where I met two people in a truck. I told them what had happened and took them to the place. There the owl was lying motionless on the ground. The guys took the owl to the Raptors' Center. They thought the owl had eaten something in bad condition. At least it is safe now. "
We are in touch with the Raptors' Center to know how it is evolving.

Two families of swans
In these two videos and photos Claudia took the two families. The coscoroba family gets nearer the edge of the Duck Pond and photos are far better than Black-necked Swans' which are very far in the Gull Pond. We also commented that there are two nests, one of each of these anatids in the Gull Pond. Ver cómo crecen los coscorobas 3-8-17 © Claudia Mon

In these two videos we can see the adults with their cygnets. Top, Coscoroba Swan nad below, Black-necked Swan. Though the Coscoroba Swan is considered a swan some behavioural and aspectual characteristics relate it to other types of anatids than swans properly speaking. Here we pinpoint two which refer to cygnets. The Coscorba Swan's cygnets are not white when born and are not carried about on their parents' back. 3-8-17 © Claudia Mon

We heard the Spix's Spinetail very close and looked for it in the bushes. It was moving about inside the foliage with no chance to photopgraph it. Following its movements we moved aside and found a very quiet Southern Beardless-Tyrannulet. Only a few seconds but enough to take a photo.
