Strange-tailed Tyrant (Alectrurus risora)
Vulnerable

Argentina As its name would suggest, this flycatcher has one weird tail! They looked like hornets flying over the scrubby marshes. This one was along the main road between Rincon del Socorro and Carlos Pelegrini in the enormous Ibara wetland complex.

We looked so hard for this species.
Amazing tail.Great find.We visited the wetlands of Esteros Del Ibara. We loved the place and the abundance of birds and wildlife.It was worth the 8 hour night bus ride to Mercedes and then the bus ride with gauchos to get to the marsh.Thanks for the memories.

Beautiful bird and excellent shot. We worked hard to see that, but didn't succeed.

Simply incredible. I was unaware of this species with my extremely limited experience in that area of the world. To see a photo of something so incredible is inspiring.
