I took these shots on 31 December which was very overcast. The location is Angra do Reis, RJ, Brazil.

I know the second shot is OOF but it is the best one of the juvenile.
I am not a "birder" but just cam across them while taking pictures of the nuclear power plant.

I don't have a clue about how to identify them.... Can You Help?

Thanks Rebel,

I should have asked my housekeeper who is here today....she recognized right away that it is a Quero-Quero which is the local common name.

I'll pay more attention to the birds when I go out of the city. In city of Sao Paulo there are mostly pigeons (rats with wings), and of course vultures.

I don't have the big lenses that some of you have but these guys let me get pretty close

Also, there are lots of "snow-bird" tourists from the northern hemisphere this time of year, too

If you go to San Juan Capistrano, in California after Easter you can see the swallows which spend part of the year in San Jose do Rio Preto in Sao Paulo about 300km from here....

Hi Jim

top one is a Cattle Tyrant (Machetornis rixosa)and bottom looks like a Masked Water Tyrant (Fluvicola nengeta)

Intervales State Park is a place I'd recommend for birding close to Sao Paulo after spending a weekend there on the back of a work trip last August...very photgenic tanagers and Blue Dacnis at feeders in the "village" area there...

Cheers
Mark

Thanks Mark.

Even though I have lived here for many years and the Intervales Park is within a days drive, I have never been in that area. I am drawn more toward the beach. I'll have to make a point of going there sometime.

As I said in a previous comment I am not a "birder". These guys were just there when I was taking some shots of the Nuclear Power Plants at Angra dos Reais. I thought it would be cool to get them lined up with the reactors in the background. But my models were not very cooperative and I couldn't get the right combination of depth of field and perspective.

These birds are pretty common; I just didn't know their names and since I got some acceptable pictures I wanted to identify them.

I will pay more attention to birds when I am out now, but I will be relying on help with ID as long as you POTN folks will put up with me.
