Trip Highlights, January, 2019
January, 1st: We were, already, on the road! We visited a total new birding site, at the County of Barra do Bugres. Read: Wonderful birding!!! Paradise Tanager, Cocoa Thrush, Gould´s Toucanet, Crimson-bellied Parakeet, just to mention a few…Then, we moved to Serra das Araras, at the Currupira das Araras Lodge, where we had countless Red-legged Seriemas, Red-bellied, Blue-and-Yellow and Red-and-Green Macaws!!! Just everywhere!!! But, it is not over! We combined this tour with the Brazilian Northeast, going to Lençois, where the Hooded Visiorbearer was seen multiple times!
Plus, the usual endemics, such Caatinga Cacholote, Caatinga Antwren and Red-cowled Cardinal.
Surely, we were the very First birders to explore the Marvellous Chapada Diamantina National Park & the First guests for Pousada da Geléia, where we had a very nice stay. We also spent a night, at the lovely village of Mucuge, in order to expand our bird list, which worked quite well!!!
Our next tour, there, will be this April, so…More, soon!!!
