Hello from Rio de Janeiro!

October 27, 2008

Hello!

 Right now, I’m in Rio! More precisely at the Ipanema Beach. Me and my group will spend the day here, going to Itatiaia, tomorrow.

 We had a wonderful time in Mato Grosso – Lots of Birds & both Otters: The La Platta and the Giant one!

From my window, I can see three Kelp Gulls & a group of people drinking & singing “Happy Birthday to you” – at 06:00 am!

 Cheerio!

“On the road again”…

October 16, 2008

Hello!

As the music says:  “On the road again…”

My next guests, are arriving, today, in the morning at the Sao Paulo International Airport.

We shall spend the night on a near by hotel & continue our ride tomorrow, when we will take a flight to Mato Grosso, visiting first the Chapada dos Guimarães National Park. Then, the Amazon Forest and finally the Pantanal.

It will be a total of 16 people!

But, this will be a Natural History oriented tour. When, birds will be just part of the tour…

Still, we shall see LOTS of birds, since the Brazilian Birds are not shy, at all!

Cheerio!

Sign of Life…

Hello!

I fell very sorry for being so many days without posting at my BLOG…

But, I had all kind of problems with internet & with my Lap Top…

In other hand, I bring very good news: I’m very impressed of how productive have been my recent birding trips!

The number of species seen is being huge & the finding of some rare species, such the Swallow-tailed Cotinga too!

Cheerio!

Sorry…

Hello!

First of all, sorry  for not being able to post at my BLOG, at a daily basis…

Well, I’m at the Pantanal! At the Piuval lodge ( www.pousadapiuval.com.br)

Yesterday, night I got a lifer for the PANTANAL:  Black-banded Owl.
