|White Monjita (Xolmis irupero)
|Barra do Quaraí, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
The White Monjita is distributed in south Brazil, south-east Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and northern Argentina with a disjunct population in north-east Brazil. It is found in open and semi-open habitats with scattered trees or bushes and is often near water.
It is mostly pure white but with black primaries and a black tip to its tail. It is usually perched quite conspicuously as it looks for insect prey before dropping to the ground to catch it.
