This is the first documented photograph of the obligate ant-follower Chestnut-crested Antbird (Rhegmatorhina cristata) for Brazil, made by Andrew Whittaker. Picture made during a private tour of Birding Brazil Tours in June 2011 to São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Brazilian Amazon but just published in August 2012 and still was the first record!
