It is a grey dawn on the morning of 18th January & I am looking over the vast Rio San Fransisco River from our hotel. Birding doesn't look very promising but how wrong can I be?
We travel out of town, down a sandy side road towards a hill used for communications. It proves to be an outstanding morning & eventually the sun shines!

Pepe, Bret & Marcello.In the afternoon we travel across the bridge to the neighbouring Bahia State, mainly for a stake out for Pygmy Nightjar. After a bit of effort in the heat, we are successful!
Not all plans go to plan!Our bus driver manages to bog down our transport in a patch of mud & we get back to our hotel quite late, but enjoy another good meal with beer & wine! Another great day on the tour!
