Brazil 2017 with Birding Ecotours

…still a couple of last-minute places available

Join us in late August and September this year for an amazing birding journey through Brazil, from the Amazon to the Pantanal and beyond. There are a still a couple of last-minute places available. Mention Fatbirder.com and we’ll mail the field guide to you free of charge.

The first leg, shown HERE, provides you with an opportunity to experience not only the world’s most bird-rich biome (the Amazon) from the comfort of the famed Cristalino Lodge, but it also allows you to see a large chunk of the world’s largest wetland (the Pantanal). The Pantanal is not only very bird-rich, but is also full of relatively easy to see charismatic mammals and we look for Jaguar, Ocelot, Crab-eating Raccoon, Crab-eating Fox, Capybara and all the others while looking for the avian specials.

The second leg, shown HERE, allows us to target the Critically Endangered Brazilian Merganser (world population: less than 250 and declining) along with Cerrado endemics. Cerrado is Brazil’s second largest biome (after the Amazon) and covers about a fifth of Brazil’s vast land area.

We also run Atlantic Forest endemics tours in Brazil, and we’re planning a 2018 trip to target the recently described, Critically Endangered, Araripe Manakin (along with Lear’s Macaw and other northern Brazil specials)
