Another first sighting for the Pantanal ! 403.

And we keep sighting new birds for the Pantanal. This time it has been the Lake Duck (Oxyura vittata, Marreca-pé-na-bunda).

This stiff-tailed duck is a typical representant of this family as it has an erected tail feather when the bird is at rest. It comes from Argentina and was first sighted here on Fazenda Barranco Alto, July 2009.
