photographing and learning about wildlife
A week ago, I spotted this bird for the first time. It is very small and constantly moves between the branches and I did not get a good photo. I returned today to the same place and there it was (maybe the same female last week), now next to his companion.
Live in the open fields, among thorny trees. Occurs in the cerrado and in urban areas. Lives openly in the treetops, exposed to wind and strong sunlight . Enjoying arid regions. Keeps the tail in constant motion, both vertically and laterally. If excited opens it like a fan, exposing the contrasting white and black coloring. Occurs in Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
