Photographer's Note

Atibaia is a small town about 60 kilometres far from São Paulo city. We went there last weekend. This bird is named "quero-quero", according to people there. I tried to get closer to them but they looked very hostile to me. After some minutes, I could figure out why they were so angry with me, maybe they thought I wanted to eat their babies!

Well, I managed to get quite close to them, didn't I? They put their eggs on the ground, next to the border of a soccer field. There's a big, high net all around the field, to avoid the ball to go far from there. I was behind the net, just two metres from this scene, so that they couldn't peak me. Fortunately, this guy isn't smart enough, to notice he could fly over the net and catch me at the other side! That's why I'm still here to tell you this story :-).
