New summer visitor

A new interesting bird was seen for the first time around the park, it happend while driving from Ribeirão Grande to Intervales, after pulling out the road for a Streamer-tailed Tyrant on a pine tree, we noticed a pair of a greenish bird by the road on a grazing field, at the beginning we thought it was a Great Pampa-Finch, as this species had been seen previously, but in the end we noticed a different tail indicating that we were dealing with a new species. Lesser Grass-Finch is the new species listed for Intervales' buffer zone.
