This morning I was walking along the outer side of Coypu Pond when I saw an unusual number of egrets at Parrilla Don José. It was a group of 70 individuals foraging and moving actively in the pond. They barely flew about.
Since I had previously seen fish near this area I associated they could be their food ...
I am sending some photos of this event since this was really a wonderful spectacle!

Time for fish We have been finding young fish everywhere. Insects are difficult to determine, much more are fish which are underwater. We thank Guillermo Ivan Spajic for helping us in the identification

These livebearers are sound in rives, lagoons, etc. They are called livebearers since they give birth to live young.

The Order Orthoptera is formed by two groups: Ensifera or mainly called crickets and Caelifera or grasshoppers. The most basic form to tell them apart is the length of the antennas. Crickets have more than 30 segments, grasshoppers, less than that. That is long and short antennas

Sergio Cusano tells us "When I arrived at the reserve I was surprised to see two boxes with a Strip-backed Bittern each. They had been taken from the suburban area the day before. One of them was in good health, the other one had an injured leg. (Above)

After taking photos with Roberto Guller and other photographers at the Nursery one of the personnel of the Raptor Rehabilitation Center decides to release one of the bitterns (photos below) at Canal Vaimonte. Everybody went to see how the bird was returned to nature. At firts it was immobile for some minutes examining hte place till it began to move very slowly and getting into the canal in sarch for a place to feed. We took photographs for half an hour and left.
The injured bittern will stay at the center till it is fit to be released."

These six ducklings appeared without their mother. They saw a Ringed Teal family nearby and tried to join them. But the adults were reluctant to do so.

We stayed a while to see if someone took care of them but nobody did. Although ducklings are not fed by their parents, they drive them to the feeding area and protect them. Small as they are they become easy preys. We were in fact very surprised when Nicolás sent us the photo of the six ducklings. He also found them alone and says they were moving very cautiously and this might alert predators...

The tala is a native tree of the bosque chaqueño and the espinal, expanding along the Río Paraná ravines till Punta Indio. The branches present a zig-zagging form with big spines on the corners, which helps in the identification. Leaves are serrated. The fruit is orange, sweet and very appreciated by birds.
In this tala we found a White-eyed Parakeet
