|White-banded Mockingbird (Mimus triurus)
|Barra do Quaraí, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
The White-banded Mockingbird breeds in central and northern Argentina. During the austral winter it migrates northwards to Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and the southern tip of Brazil. Belton registered it in Rio Grande do Sul from 30th April to 30th November.
It is found in woodland, and semiopen country with scattered bushes and trees.
|Its main distinguishing feature is the long broad white stripe extending from the shoulder to the secondaries. This is very obvious in flight. A quick glance reminded me superficially of the unrelated Grey Monjita Xolmis cinerea. It also has a rufous tinge to the rump, a pale supercilium and a dusky line through the eye.|
