There was only one record of this starling on this site. It was detected by Rodolfo Pani in August 2014. It is considered an invasive species just like the European starling.
Gustavo captured this tiger-heron eating a rallid chick. It was at the beginning of the Canal Viamonte. This is the fourth record of a tiger-heron eating a bird. On previous occasions they preys were white-tufted grebe, European starling and a duckling of yellow-billed teal.

Behind the white-winged coot with yellow shield and bill and closing the line the red-fronted coot with a red shield and a yellow bill.
