New Home & Old Neighbors Hello ! I’m in Aracajú, with the Family & TONS of paper work!!! We have now, a new home but, THANKS GOD: The same old neighbors – A Happy Family of Great Kiskadees !!! They raised two youngs – They are alread flying in the near by houses. Last week, one of the juvenals , stayed for a long time in one of our walls. Our five year old son, can recognize their call & love them!!! In fact, they are calling as I write this post. Yours, Paulo Boute.


Harpy Eagles !!!

November 12, 2009


What an exciting Trip!

Besides, smashing views of the Young Harpy Eagle at Serra das Araras – Including a very nice flight from one tree to another one ( much closer, by the way).

Me and my guests found an adult male at the Chapada dos Guimarães National Park , holding a Collared Anteater / Tamandua!

Chapada dos Guimarães is a place that I had been birding since 30 years ago. Several times I heard reports about Harpy Eagles beeing seen there but, only last week, I got – Finally- My first one!!!

Now, I’m in my way for the Araripe Manakin & Lear’s Macaws!
