Many of the flycatchers are very plain looking birds and they give those of us that like to identify birds many challenges. Every now and then there is one that is easy to identify and has distinct easily recognizable field marks. The Sepia-capped Flycatcher is one of those birds.
While this is not the best photo, as it is very noisy, I really like it. We were walking back to our rooms after dinner and we talking about Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl that hangs out in the area near our rooms and then we spotted this little owl sitting on a chair outside of my room. This photo is taken at ISO of 12800. Right now this is my favorite little owl
We saw many tanagers on our trip. They are all beautiful birds, but to me this one is the most striking one we saw. I really like the elegance of this species. This is a Swallow Tanager.
This morning walk was very productive and we found a pair of Rufous-winged Antshrikes. They approached very close and we all captured nice photos of this species. To me this was the prettiest of the antshrikes we saw in the Pantanal.
One of the last days in the Pantanal we had the most memorable experience with ant shrikes. On morning walk this morning yielded many interesting birds. This is a female Rufous-winged Antshrike.
