Part 5 is some of the doves of the Iguassu/Ibera area and several other species that didn't naturally group together - I'm trying to save the best for last. Several posts to go yet!

The biggest pigeon of the region is the Picazuro Pigeon



Spot-winged Pigeon [Ibera]



White-tipped Dove [Ibera]





Ruddy Ground Dove [Iguassu - Brazil]



Brown-chested Martin [Ibera] - cf. Brown-throated Martin



Great Dusky Swift - these amazing aerial feeders can be seen amidst the spray of the Iguassu Falls hawking insects; they roost and nest on rocky ledges close to and even behind many of the cataracts.



Wattled Jacana [Ibera] - this is probably the "type" jacana as its scientific name is Jacana jacana



I was probably 10-14 days too early for the migratory waders arriving form the north. I saw just one single bird, the appropriately named Solitary Sandpiper



South American Snipe



Southern Lapwing
