Tour by Paul Smith. Night drives brought a host of new mammal species such as Tayra, Azaras Agouti, Lowland Tapir and Coati. Bird wise there were some interesting local specialities with an isolated range in Paraguay including Pale-legged Hornero, Band-winged Nighthawk, Crested Oropendola, Common Tody-flycatcher, Silver-beaked Tanager. Cinereous-breasted Spinetail was heard but not seen. Other interesting birds included Sungrebe, great views of a perched Muscovy Duck, Great Horned Owl, Green-winged Saltator. A Rufous-tailed Jacamar and an Orange-backed Troupial were seen on the Brazilian side of the river facing Paraguay.
