Return of the Aramides.
OCTOBER 20, 2018
These rails were featured in a 10,000 Birds post a few weeks ago. The Slaty-breasted Wood-Rail , Aramides saracura , was seen as the light was fading over the Botanical Gardens (Jardim do Botanico) in Sao Paulo, Brazil. On that occasion, I was only able to photograph one of them. But this time, I was able to enjoy an intimate moment between the pair and would like to share it with you. They were preening and feeding in a stream that flowed into the gardens from a spring in the surrounding forest.
