Argentinian Avifauna

With little more to report today than the weather conditions, which were about the same as yesterday, we once again have to rely on the archive for a pictorial post. Even the favoured fruit tree of recent days had been forsaken by all but a couple of Blackbird, but on Radipole I noted c3 Mallard, another mechanical Digger, a Hedge Sparrow, a posted Planning Application and c2 Birdwatchers. Continuing the almost relentless 'building programme', there is now intent to construct a pond and dipping platform with boardwalk access, yet more unnecessary concrete and wood this postage stamp size area should not be subjected to? In addition whatever happened to 'free-range' kids who used to carry out these simple pursuits without an RSPB platform?

On to some birds of South America:-

Green-barred Woodpecker

Bay-winged Cowbird

Chestnut-capped Blackbird


Double-collared Seedeater

Giant Wood Rail

Eared Dove

Guira Cuckoo

Striated (Green) Heron, one of my favourite images as inadvertently captured the bird and polystyrene cup for size comparison.

Hooded Siskin
