Southern Lapwing Bird, Iguazu Falls Argentine side MG_9922

The southern lapwing  is a wader. It is a common and widespread resident throughout South America, except in densely forested regions (e.g. most of the Amazon), the higher parts of the Andes and the arid coast of a large part of western South America. This bird is particularly common in the basin of the Rio de la Plata.

Plush-crested Jay Iguazu Falls Argentine side MG_ 9864

The most striking bird I saw at Iguazu Falls.  Like all Jays they are noisy and territorial, and above all quite attractive bird. Apart from the falls, Iguazu is part of a protected rainforest ecosystem and home to a great number of plants, birds, mammals species and more.  A must see and should be on everyone bucket list.
