12-16 February - Copacabana blues

An impromtu trip to Rio de Janeiro proved somewhat frustrating.....

 Frigate bird, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro


A work trip gave extremely few chances to see anything much - in the end an hour in the botanical gardens in Rio de Janeiro was all I could manage. Flocks of vultures and Frigate Birds overhead constantly and obviously plenty of birds everywhere.

No idea what any of these birds are yet - a book on the birds of Brazil will be ordered soon. Looks like this won't be the last time in Rio...
