October 27, 2016 – Brown-and-yellow Marshbird or Yellow-breasted Marshbird (Pseudoleistes virescens)
These New World Blackbirds are found in marshes, wet grasslands, pastures, fields, and other open areas in parts of Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. They eat insects and other arthropods, small vertebrates, and some seeds, foraging mostly on the ground. Nesting earlier in the year than many related species, they are cooperative breeders. As many as eight helper birds often assist pairs with caring for the chicks.
