The Streamer-tailed Tyrant in all its glory This is a distinctive and dramatic bird that is not widely known outside of south-eastern Brazil. Our guide used taped calls (which I usually frown on) to get one to appear and they are beautiful little birds, but fairly shy and difficult to get a good look or photo.

      1. Hehe, I know what you mean. It's sometimes confusing to take a compliment. Same as when people say "wow beautiful species!". What do you do? Thanks? I didn't create it :) Posted 8 months ago
        1. Haha, true, although if someone writes beautiful species I would say - yes, it is. Posted 8 months ago
