We could approach this White Hawk (Leucopternis albicollis) up to less than 6 meters.

Also this White-necked Puffbird (Notharchus macrorhynchus) I could approach up to 4 meters.
Usually they stay in treetops. But not this one, who had nothing else than a devasted forest.

Southern Tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) wandering in the plains. Usually this tree-climbing animal looks
for ants and termites close to forest. So he can go for safety when threatened.
