Black-capped Warbling-finch did a passable impersonation of the old world Sardinian Warbler as it slipped through some bushes (although it was considerably more showy than that species!). A stunning Many-coloured Chaco-Finch perched up for superb scope views and a Golden-billed Saltator did likewise. A pair of Greater Wagtail-tyrants came close into nearby bushes. More
