The little grebe's head barely shows out of plumage. While it is on the adult's back, the adult can not dive in search for food. At the beginning a masked duck and two white-faced whistling-ducks appear on the scene
As we returned along the Lizard Path, Pablo heard the diademed tanager. It stayed in the area singing and eating. As we enjoyed its song a Swainson's flycatcher appeared. It only emitted a vocalization and left.
We had detected two pied-billed grebe nests though we did not know exactly the beginning. Here we could see two little grebes. One of them is being fed by the adult. Later as we walked towards the Brasil end we discovered the other nest had also finished its cycle. Al least one little grebe was with its parents..
Eduardo says "I am looking for the black-backed water tyrant at the new viewpoint, also on the lookout for the stripe-backed bittern when suddenly right under my nose some meters away from the edge I see something moving, a spotted rail. It was in a bad state, agonizing, with convulsions. It opened the wings, moved its head backwards and could not keep it upright. As I could not get the Rehabilitation Center's number, there I went in search for help. I was authorized to get into the Center. A young guy wearing surgical gloves appeared and told him about the rail. He said the rail had been realeased that same morning and it was in good state. So as soon as they finished with a cure, they would see to it. I headed for the Canal Viamonte and when I went back to the viewpoint the rail was no longer there. Perhaps the rail was attacked by a predator, that's why it was in such a bad state."
Fernando says "I discovered the bittern because the coscoroba swans drove it away since it had got too close to the cygnets, otherwise it would have passed unnoticed. The bittern appears at the right bottom of the photo. I had not seen it till that moment."
