BirdForum staff,
at the Opus page you have a photo of the green-crested Plovercrest from Itatiaia National Park (nominal spp.) and I just uploaded a shot from the Southern spp. loddigesii from Intervales State Park with a blue crest: http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p/photo/483417 ... you should add this to the Opus page is this is a likely split.

A video that I recorded of this subspecies (and very likely the same individual as in Diego's photo!) at Intervales last October can be found here:

Dalcio, it seems we were there almost at the same time!.. I visited Intervales from October 13-17, 2013!!... my individual was "hiding" in the tree-ferns area you access just side of the gate to the Carmo Road.. this is my video there:

Hi Diego,

Very close indeed! Carlos Sanchez and I got there late on the 23rd and left on the morning of the 28th. My 3rd visit to Intervales in 20 years since my first visit. We were there during the time that a VENT birding tour group led by Kevin Zimmer was also there. On our first day out (10/24) we came up Carmo road and the VENT group had an immature Gray-bellied Hawk which they graciously pointed out to us. Probably the rarest sighting of our 3 week sojourn through SE Brazil.
