Claudia tells us that the nenday was looking into the hole and she stopped to watch it since it seemed funny, Then it tore some pieces of bark away. The other fellows got near and drove him away and they also looked into the hole. She thinks they had just found it and were investigating.
Let's add these parakeets nest in holes

Most likely a courtship display in which the male follows the female that keeps a distance by moving away but not too enphatically. A couple of flaps add to the situtation. Simón did not see the end of it.

Caracara vs coypu
Caracara plancus - Myocastor coypus
Coipo-carancho/Coypu/Caracara15-6-17 © Nicolás Giorgio I was looking at the Duck Pond, which is really very "busy" and saw how the caracaras worked as a team chasing nendays on the wing, though the effort was unsucessful.
But it was much more interesting to observe a caracara on the ground walking very cautiously to get to a place. It was a pool of water inside the pond. In it a coypu moved easily in search for food. The caracara got nearer till the coypu realised how near the bird was, slid out of the water and began to drive caracara away. I had never seen a coypu run and just as a comment it resembles a rabbit in the way it does, almost hopping. The caracara quickly flaps and flies away. They nevercame into contact but we can say the coypu threw out the caracara, which flew off.
I photographed the scene when the coypu leaves the water and attacks the caracara. But not the end of the story. Actions precipitated ...

Pirincho/Guira cuckoo10-6-17 © Gustavo F. Brahamian
The way this cuckoo is perching on the wire shows its foot arrangement. Two, out of the four toes, wrap the wire from the front and the other two from the back. This arrangement of two opposing
pairs of toes (DII-DII and DI-DIV) is known as zygodactyl foot and is one of the modifications which derives from the anisodactyl foot, whihc is the firs most common toe arrangement.

A tireless fight between the tiger-heron and the snake. Stun or kill the snake is not an easy job for the tiger-heron. IOn this occasion the fight lasted 15 minutes. The snake defends by wriggling around the tiger-heron's neck to suffocate it. The tiger-heron even got rid of it to catch it again.

Sally saw it in the morning and Sergio photographed it. This is the second record of the year of a coot which was very common before. ¿Are they in the Gull Pond and we can not see them?

We heard the peppershrike's voice coming nearer and went for him. It was not easy to capture the bird. We heard him sing for quite a while. When I managed to find it a plane flew by very noisily. So I add a part of the video with its voice only.
