Hello from the Araripe National Forest

April 21, 2009

Hello! I’m back to Crasto – A lovely village, extremely close to the National Forest of Araripe. This time I came guiding journalists interested on the Araripe Manakin & the National Forest of Araripe. It rainned but, it wasn’t a problem to film it & some of the other Caatinga Endemics such the Caating Antwren, Silvery-Cheeked and Caatinga Barred Antshrike. I may leave tomorrow but, I’m already missing this wonderful place!!! Paulo Boute.

May you all have a nice day & wonderful week!
