Later in the morning we took a walk through a bit of forest that had suffered a large fire a few weeks prior. Despite the apparent extent of the fire, the forest here was birdy. We enjoyed great views of the minute SHORT-TAILED PYGMY-TYRANT and CINNAMON-THROATED HERMITS. The pygmy-tyrant is so tiny that it looks more like an insect during its brief flights.
...yet one can see some greenery has survived the fire. The vegetation here is very resistant to fire.
After lunch it was back on the road again, this time to our final destination: Chapada dos Guimaraes & vicinity. On the way, in a flooded farm field, we picked up a species we thought we had missed: WHITE-FACED WHISTLING-DUCK.
Burnished-buff Tanager, Swallow Tanager, and White-bellied Warbler.

After dark, we encountered a HOARY FOX on the hotel grounds. Night at Hotel Penhasco.
