Coral-fronted Threadtail Neonura aaroni:

Update July 03 2006: I've added close-ups of a pair, at the bottom.
Update June 05 2005: Today I was lucky enough to I find a number of significant records at the fabulous Halff Brothers Ranch west of Pearsall in Frio County, Texas (50 miles south of San Antonio), where the Frio River winds through thousands of acres of pristine gallery forest.   These finds included both species of Neonura
Update May 23 2005: Today I found N. aaroni along the Guadalupe River at the State Park in Comal County, and I've added a few more pics at the top of the page.
Update May 22 2005: Today I got lucky with both the Neonura threadtails on the Rio Grande in the wonderful Bird and Butterfly Sanctuary at San Ygnacio, Zapata County, Texas.
