The first Magnificent frigatebird we saw, were a low flying flock of 50 birds over the main city and they were 'magnificent'! After this they were, with Black Vulture, all over the shop in Rio de Janerio.
We left Barcalona two weeks ago and headed off towards Brazil for 11 days for the big carnival at Rio de Janerio as Anna was taking part in it! Not much birding done as we stayed all the time in the city but had a lot of fun feeding the monkeys.
