We report on the capture of an adult male Rufous-tailed Attila (Attila phoenicurus) in Mburucuyá National Park, Corrientes, Argentina. This is not only the first record for this protected area, but also the first record for the province. Records for this species are scarce in Argentina, where it has been registered only in Misiones province. Populations of this species are believed to be declining, and it is considered a ?threatened species? in Argentina. The confirmed presence of the Rufous-tailed Attila in Mburucuyá National Park extends the species´ distribution range farther south than currently known, and implies that this threatened species occurs in at least one large protected area of Argentina.
