Part 12 is a mixed bunch.

First 4 from the Cardinalidae family -

Greyish Saltator [Ibera]



Green-winged Saltator [Ibera]



Thick-billed Saltator [Ibera]



Pair of Red-crowned Ant Tanager [Iguassu]



A couple of New World warblers -

Tropical Parula [Iguassu]



Masked Yellowthroat [Iguassu]



The Bananaquit [Iguassu]



A true finch, the Violaceous Euphonia [Iguassu] - male and female





A gnatcatcher, Masked Gnatcatcher [Ibera]



Another tyrant flycatcher, Eastern Sirystes [Iguassu]



Another ovenbird, Firewood-gatherer [Ibera] - well, almost!



Another tanager, Black-capped Warbling Finch [Ibera]



Finally, a couple of New World sparrows (Emberezidae = buntings)

Saffron-billed Sparrow [Ibera]



....and the Endangered Yellow Cardinal [Ibera] - male and female





The official reason for being listed as Endangered is habitat loss, but I'm not so sure that it has not got more to do with its aggresive behaviour!!

Really enjoying your wonderful photo's!
A lot of the names brings back memories - in 2011 I had the amazing privilege to visit the Pantanal in Brazil with my counsin, a once in a lifetime experience! :D
