Because of the importance of the Atlantic Rainforests of Brazil, the WLT is looking at another area of threatened forests close to Guapi Acu. WLT is proposing to support a project identified by BirdLife International as of the highest priority, following a detailed assessment. This area is included in their list of Key Areas for Threatened Birds in the Americas. The WLT Trustees are meeting with representatives of BirdLife International in late May to discuss the project commitment in greater detail and further information will be available after this time...

2004 [April] - Steven Burch - Chapada, Amazon & PantanalReport
Trawling through the web, it is clear that there are several birding reports for these areas of Brazil, but our trip was somewhat different from many in that we had to go in April (the end of the wet season), whereas most birders favour the dry season (June to October). In addition, this was not a pre-packaged tour with a group, but assembled from different components by myself mainly using the Internet as a source of information and contact...
2004 [September] - Trev FelthamReport
After picking up the hire car from Localiza at the airport we headed for the Itatiaia National Park, a two and a half to three hour drive along the BR116. This park was created in 1937, being the first national park in Brazil with an area of 13.000 hectares. In 1982 the area was enlarged to almost 30.000 hectares. It is situated in the Serra da Mantiqueira Mountains, the highest peak being Pico das Agulhas Negras that rises to 2787 metres. The habitat is very diverse, ranging from Atlantic Rainforest, Secondary Forests to Altitude Fields and Marsh. Arriving late morning we birded the road through the park heading towards our hotel, The Simon, where we planned to spend the next four nights. Half way along the road there are two or three shops with feeders outside, here we saw Black Jacobin, Frilled Coquette, White-throated Hummingbird, Violet-capped Woodnymph, Versicoloured Emerald and Chestnut-bellied Euphonia...
2005 [May] - Eduard Sangster - NortheastReport
As always, the goal of my trips to the NE was to see as many species as possible, especially the 63+ endemics to NE Brazil. It is impossible to cover whole endemic-packed Northeast in 2 weeks, so in 2004 I only birded Bahia state. In 2005 I birded coastal Pernambuco, Alagoas, Paraiba, Rio Grande do Norte. Therefore I left the states of Sergipe, Ceara and Piaui for a next visit. If you want to cover the whole of NE Brazil, I’ll recommend at least 6 weeks of independent birding. If you do not speak Portuguese and you do not have much time for a thorough preparation, I definately recommend an organised tour to the NE (more info see ‘Best way to go’). Unless of course you accept to miss crucial endemics...

2006 [October] - Mark Van BeirsReport
The Pantanal and Interior Brazil offer some of the finest birding in the Neotropics and on our third tour we visited the teeming marshes of the Pantanal, the untouched southern Amazonian rainforests of the Rio Cristalino Jungle Reserve, the cerrado and gallery woodland of the Chapada dos Guimarães, the rolling grasslands of the Serra da Canastra, ablaze with the colours of a myriad wildflowers and the rocky outcrops of the Serra do Cipo. We recorded 528 species...
2006 [September] - Marcel HolyoakReport
We visited Sao Paolo, Parana and a tiny bit of Santa Catharina states from 3rd to 17th September 2006 recording nearly 400 bird species including 58 endemics. The two guides referenced in the report were excellent. Despite extensive travels and tours with guides, I have never met a guide with as much knowledge of calls or ability to precisely locate calls as Edson Endrigo, who guided the first part of the trip...

This is the fifth time I’ve done this itinerary and again it was a fun and very productive trip. It’s a fast-paced tour that covers a lot of ground, but that gives the chance to sample a great variety of habitats and go for lots of those very localized endemics that Brazil is so famous for...
2009 [August] - Nick Athanas - Pantanal & AmazonReport
It’s a hard combo to beat – the vast primeval Amazonian forests of Cristalino and the non-stop wildlife show of the Pantanal, where pretty much the only way to stop seeing stuff is to close your eyes. There’s also a bit of cerrado birding thrown in to add some spice and variety, where you can quickly see a bunch of neat birds not available elsewhere on the tour...
2009 [October] - Nick AthanasReport
Our 2009 Southeast Brazil tour was surprising in many ways. Only two people signed up for it, thanks in large part to the global recession. Even though time was short and I had already pretty much given up on the tour, I decided to run it anyway, a decision I nearly came to regret, as it was a struggle to get lodge space at short notice...
2009 [September] - Marcelo Padua - The Amazon, Pantanal & Atlantic ForestReport
Our inaugural trip to Brazil was a smashing hit that offered a taste of what this beautiful country has to offer and the opportunity to see as many birds in as little time as possible. With an astounding checklist of over 1800 species of birds, our 20 day exploration of this magical destination produced more than a third (we recorded 640 species) of the country’s birds; some of which are among the most sought after birds in South America...

Winter can be a beautiful time to bird Southeast Brazil. There was a bit of rain for the first couple of days before the clouds retreated and we had fantastic clear, balmy days for the rest of the tour, which certainly helped the bird list. We saw over 300 for the first time on this tour, exceeding even the typically more productive spring tours...
2010 [October] - Adam RileyReport
Brazil, one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet, is a dream destination for any naturalist - and especially so for birders! During this tour we explored the celebrated Pantanal, the planet’s largest wetland, encompassing 250,000 sq kms of emerald forests, savannas, swathing rivers and shallow lagoons; as well as the verdant Amazon rainforest with its amazing diversity of avifauna rivalled nowhere else on earth.

2011 [October] - Miguel CastelinoReport
Brazil, for good reason, remains one of the most visited countries in South America amongst birdwatchers and nature lovers alike. Its variety of habitats and more than 1800 bird species (including 211 endemics) makes it one of the planet’s most unique and rewarding destinations to explore, and our tour total of over 500 species in just 19 days reflects the awesome avian potential of this vast and biologically spectacular nation.
2013 [April] - Fred Tavares - Northeast EndemicsReport PDF
...We managed to see 85 endemic species and recorded a total of 452 species including over 40 Antbirds, many endemic. It has been neglected by ornithologists until recently, with the discovery of many new species to science many of which we saw, not least of these being the superb Araripe Manakin and the Pink-legged Graveiteiro....

After a few years of guiding birdwatchers I decided to get a little camera and start photographing during the tours I organize with the intention of giving my clients a few pictures at the end of each trip. It turned into a nice hobby and my image bank started growing a lot. As time went by many of my clients started to ask me to post my pictures on the web and my new clients wanted me to send some pictures, to get used to the birds they would see during the trip. This website is a response to those clients and I hope that it may help others to prepare for trips to Brazil. Most of the pictures were taken at the Pantanal or Cerrado because that is where most of my tours take place…

Twenty years ago, when I started to study the neotropical birds, I was excited about the discovery of nature and about the challenges of the work I had in mind. So, I decided to travel to places inside the country, trying to observe as much species as possible. That period of learning helped me a lot to know the birds and gave me some worry about their future. In a short time I understood it was impossible for me to capture the simple essence of the complex structure of a bird in a drawing...
