IDentificAtion. We recorded two individuals on differ- ent occasions in October 2016, which is during this species’ migration to South America. The individuals were seen in flight near Erythrina fusca Monodominant Forest. This is a new record for Cáceres municipality. This

species differs from I. plumbea by its paler head, the lack of rufous primaries, the uniform dark tail, and the dark tarsus ( Sick 1997; Gwynne et al. 2010).
