We recorded the amazing number of 569 species of birds! Almost one third present in the country. And among this huge list, we saw nearly half of all Brazilian endemics (near a hundred seen among the 230+ endemics of Brazil). Undoubtedly the Southeast Atlantic Forest Brazil tour is the best for endemics, rare species and the amazing uniqueness of the Atlantic Forest, a singular and really threatened biome, with 7% remaing. Our trip was full of birds, seeing different species every single day. Exciting and remarkable moments were frequent all along the trip. From the Red-billed Curassows, Solitary Tinamous, White-necked Hawks and Tawny-browed Owls at VALE Reserve to an impressive number of fanstatic species in a vast number of other fascinating localities, such as the Ornate Hawk-Eagle nest, Wied’s Tyrant-Manakin and Frilled Coquettes at Santa Teresa, the rare Brazilian Laniisoma and the unforgettable enigmatic (super-rare) Cherry-throated Tanager at Caetes Forest, the high altitude species at Pico Caledonia and Agulhas Negras Road, the lowlands specialties from the coast of Rio to Parana in the south. The amazing experience at the impressive Intervales State Park, full of rarities, to the beauty of the landscapes in Rio Grande do Sul state, with great edemics and many special birds to look for. Ultimately, it is a long and pleasant tour that you will remember forever, certainly among the best ones.
