Brazil's biodiversity and ease of access to wildlife make it a very popular destination for bird photographers from around the world. Join us in a quest to see some of the most vibrant fauna that the country has to offer from the Atlantic rainforests to the coasts of Rio De Janeiro.
Brazil's Atlantic forests are some of the least explored rainforests of South America and may also be one of the most underrated. We start our tour in Sao Paulo. Tour participants are picked up at the airport and the night spent at the airport hotel. Next morning we drive south to our first lodge where we spend 3 nights. Our targets here will 2 types of toucans, green-headed tanagers, euphonias, 2 species of parrots and several others. We also set up multi-flash at this location to shoot the 4 different species of local hummingbirds including the Brazilian ruby hummingbird.
Next, we move to the coast where we will look for several species of birds both at our feeders and in the wild. Our targets for the next few days will coastal species such as Brazilian tanager, azure jay, burrowing owls, channel billed toucan etc. Our last location is a 4 hr drive further south. With several options to cover we also hope to add a ton of other species to our list. This will be our final location of the tour. Red-necked Tanager, frilled coquette, saw-billed hummingbird, black-eared fairy, swallow-tailed manakin will all be part of that special list of birds.
On our last morning, we head back to Sao Paulo on the 25th where we spend the night before leaving for the airport next morning.
