A common bird in Pantanal, and several resides close to the buildings of Pousada Xaraés. This one is part of a group in which one pair had chicks that perhaps the very same day had left their nest, and thus they were all trying to divert me from the chicks on the ground.

They were unable to fly, so they had left the nest prematurely – perhaps a predator got too close.

It sounds like this:



  • Aperture: ƒ/13
  • Camera: NIKON D3S
  • Focal length: 210mm
  • ISO: 1000
  • Shutter speed: 1/250 s
