Agami heron

Today we had a very interesting first sighting of a Agami heron (Agamia agami, Soco' beija-flor), a very elusive, shy, solitary heron that never shows itself in the open. I was not known in these parts of the Pantanal ... further observations will tell if it is migratory or resident. We found it hidden close to still water and it immediately hid further into the undergrowth. With this species, our bird list has grown to a proud 395 species !
