Marco tells us 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 about his health

State of the Duck and Gull Ponds
A year after the first photos taken by Eduardo we celebrate the return of the water to the ponds with these three videos. They were taken on 18th July and show the present state of the Duck and Gull Ponds. Unlike The Coypu, where water is injected from the river, the Duck and Gull Ponds recover without man intervention.

Two swan families
In these two videos and photos Claudia took two swan families. The coscoroba swan family of the Duck Pond comes near the shore and shots are better than those of the black-necked swans which are far away in the Gull Pond. Before we had said that there are two nests, one of each of these anatids in the Gull Pond.

The the coscoroba swan is considered a swan there are some physical and behavioural characteristics which associate this bird more to other anatids than to proper swans. Here we note two which deal with cygnets. The coscoroba cygnets are not white when they are born and they are not carried on their parents' back.

Following its movements we moved aside and found a very quiet southern beardless-tyrannulet. Only a few seconds but enough to take a photo
