After a long time I come back posting in TN after a fantastic trip to the Bahia State in Brazil. I captured this beautiful Viuvinha (White-headed Marsh Tyrant, Arundinicola leucocephala) at a mangrove near "Praia do Forte", a beautiful beach site in Bahia. I will be posting many other species I found there after this. I hope you enjoy.

Something about it:

The White-headed Marsh Tyrant, Arundinicola leucocephala, is a small passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family, the only member of the genus Arundinicola.

It breeds in tropical South America from Colombia, Venezuela and Trinidad south to Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay.
This species is found in marshy savannahs, reedbeds and the edges of mangrove swamps.
The adult White-headed Marsh Tyrant is 12.7 cm long and weighs 15 g.
White-headed Marsh Tyrants wait on an exposed perch in marsh vegetation or a branch near water, occasionally sallying out to feed on insects, their staple diet, before returning to the perch.

Interesting bird, nice shot - the perspective is nice, the background blurry enough to bring out the bird. A favorite.

Ahaaaa! Começou a tirar as belezinhas da cartola, hein! Que viuvinha bonitinha...but I think she is in love with you! Beleza de composição com as folhas verdinhas, os galhos e o fundo desfocado. Perfecta! E já é até uma favorita! Olha lá o asterisco! Parabéns! Esta é a maior aprovação que se pode ter por aqui.

Hola Fabiano,
Muy bonita imagen de este simpático pájaro, me gusta su copete y cara blanca, contrasta mucho con su cuerpo oscuro.
