We drove from REGUA (Reserva Ecolˇgica de Guapiašu) to Nova Friburgo and on to Sumidouro during the latter part of the morning of October 23, 2011. After enjoying splendid views of several Three-toed Jacamars, we did some additional birding in the area. Brad photographed this Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture, Cathartes burrovianus, as it soared overhead. The Lesser is similar to the larger Turkey Vulture but is blacker. Its head is mostly yellow with a black stripe through the eye. Note the distinct white shafts of its primaries. Temperatures were in the 70's on this partly cloudy afternoon.
