Gina Bellagamba, Danielle Bellagamba-Oliveira, Rafael Antunes Dias


Here we report on the first record of the Grey-bellied Shrike Tyrant (Agriornis micropterus) for Brazil. An individual of this species was observed and photographed on 8 September 2012 at “Estância Tarumã”, Uruguaiana, state of Rio Grande do Sul. The individual observed probably belonged to populations nesting in central-southern Argentina and migrating to northern Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay during the austral winter. More records are necessary to determine the status of occurrence of this species in Brazil.
