The Rufous Casiornis, Casiornis rufus (Vielliot, 1916), is widespread in central South America, reaching its southernmost distribution in northern Argentina and Uruguay. Here we present the first nine records of the species for Rio Grande do Sul state, southern Brazil. The records were documented with photographs and consisted mostly of lone individuals observed in riparian forests inserted in a matrix of grasslands and rice fields. The Rufous Casiornis apparently occurs in very low densities in the region. More observations are needed to elucidate its status of occurrence in Rio Grande do Sul. © 2015 Check List and Authors.

Here we report on the first record of the Grey-bellied Shrike Tyrant (Agriornis micropterus) for Brazil. An individual of this species was observed and photographed on 8 September 2012 at “Estância Tarumã”, Uruguaiana, state of Rio Grande do Sul. The individual observed probably belonged to populations nesting in central-southern Argentina and migrating to northern Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay during the austral winter. More records are necessary to determine the status of occurrence of this species in Brazil. © 2015 Sociedade Brasileira de Ornitologia. All rights reserved.
