We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Greater Ani has not been seen in the Cambyreta area but is occasionally seen in the forests along the river Parana.
It is a large bird of around 40cm. Like the Smooth-billed Ani is has an unusual looking bill with a prominent projection at the top. The colour is striking with blue and green sheen on the predominantly black feathers. The long tail has a bluish sheen and the iris is pale.
The call is a pleasant chatter.
The Argentine name is Ano Grande.
