Almost at the same time as the White Hawks were spotted, we saw another (for me) new species - the Long-billed Tyrant. It was fairly high up on a tree, almost directly above us. I had to move as far away as I could to get a less acute shooting angle, but there was only so far I could go. We were fortunate, as it was apparently in the midst of nest-building, as indicated by the twig present in its beak.
