This month we started with an scouting trip at the County of Pacatuba, which is close to Aracaju, the capital of the Brazilian State Sergipe. I was with Bruno Almeida, which is a native biologist with great knowledge on shore birds and, now, wants to learn more about forest and Caatinga birds. We left at 4:30 am. It took us about one hour to reach the first Bird spot…And, we couldn´t have a better start: Pectoral Antwren! We took pictures without the use of play back, with zero stress for this lovely bird…Well, someone already said: ” Every time you go Birding you shall miss a bird that you expect to see & will see a bird that you DIDN´T expect to see”…In this case, a Blond-Crested Woodpecker, in a open field!!!
And, since “The show has to go on”…In two weeks, after attending the Brazilian Bird Fair, aka, AVISTAR, I will be guiding a father & his son to the wonderful Carajas National Forest, with about 600 species of birds, including Harpy Eagle, with an active nest…Ending with a fabulous Birding & & Jaguar Photo Safari, at the Brazilian Pantanal.
