    Piping Guan, Pantanal, Brazil

    Hi I'm rather confused with this Piping Guan. The dewlap is mainly red, however there is some blue on the throat. Is it a Red-throated Piping Guan (Pipile cujubi), a Blue-throated (Pipile cumanensis) which is what the guide told us, or is it a intermediate form between the two? The picture was...

    Unknown, Ilha Grande, Brasil

    I've seen this bird in october on Ilha Grande in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. The bird was on a big dead tree, inside the forest, together with a Picazuro Pigeon (the bigger bird on one of the pictures). It was an overcast, grey day, so the picture is not the best. Can anyone help? André

    Brazil: budget Patanal/Amazonia

    Brazil: budget Patanal/Amazonia

    Working on a report, but that may take a while. We had a local guide all along. First we stayed in Pousada Vento Sul in Chapada dos Guimarães (will you go there?) and birded around the town (Vale do Jamaca, Vale do Bencao, Estrada Agua Fria and Estrada da Geladeira. The place was full of birds...

    Not sure if 20 years old gem is really useful.....;) I do remember seeing them at the ponds near the airport (actually mating on my rubber boots...) and close to the dog kennels, probably the very same place Tom mentioned. André

    How many markings per bird?

    That is correct, however most probably never happens. I have seen birds with a neck collar and three rings on their legs, I can't remember any bird with more than 4 markings that I'v seen. André
