Black-necked and Coscoroba Swan, Striolated Spinetail, Black-and-Gold Cotinga & Nesting Swallow-tailed Cotinga and Black-legged Dacnis…Plus TWO tours running at the same time at the Brazilian Northeast…This month brought us lots of birds & Happy Birders.
We had tours covering the Atlantic Forest and the South of Brazil – Rio Grande do Sul…But, instead of saying this would be our final tours for 2015…We prefer to have them as a “warm up” tours for 2016!!! Since, in – early – January, we have a couple of tours already planned to go! Below, links with photos of these recent & excellent tours:
Wow! Once more we made history! For the very first time a Ringed Kingfisher was watched & photographed swallowing a snake, at the Pantanal!!!
That spiced with incredible Jaguar views – Including the killing of a caiman, made the mind of our clients to blow up!!!
Birds were being good too – The White-banded Mockingbird, extremely rare, at the Northern Pantanal was seen, combined with the Yellow-bellied Seedeater, at the feeder of our office, near the airport of Cuiabá!!!
August and September: The peak of the season for the Pantanal and Atlantic Forest, where we are having several tours is promissing to be very exciting!!!
APRIL , 2015
On the first week of April, we runned two tours, one of them was a three day tour.
But, we got over 200 species of birds!
Plus, we found the most southern population of Red-Necked Aracaris, at Serra das Araras.
A nice flock of 10 birds!
For the second week, we will be runnng a tour with 14 tour participants, from USA.
They are coming with two leaders. So, it shall be a very nice “team work” showing to these happy travellers the beauties of the Pantanal, Serra das Araras, Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, Ubatuba and Itatiaia National Park!
We had a great start in 2015!
hree wonderful tours: Two at the Brazilian Northeast and one for Ubatuba and Itatiaia.
Including the discover of a new site for the Araucaria Tit-Spinetail, between Ubatuba and Itatiaia. There we had the bird coming as close as 10 feet! What a finding!!!
