Seeing a Jaguar in the wild is a rare and magical experience, but the chance of spotting one is usually slim and searching for them often means no birding. Well, not on this tour to Brazil!
We'll hit the Pantanal just as water levels are receding and hundreds of Jabirus, Wood Storks, Limpkins, Roseate Spoonbills, and literally thousands of other waders, Paraguayan Caiman ('gators), and Capybaras congregate around the shrinking ponds--and the few remaining bodies of water become popular hangouts for Jaguars stalking their prey. We will keep our eyes peeled for these massive cats on quiet, relaxing boat trips packed with curassows, Agami Herons, Sungrebes, and Sunbitterns and take walks through the forest to show you everything from Hyacinth Macaws to woodcreepers, antbirds, and spinetails. On drives along the famous Transpantaneira park road, which we will cover from beginning to end, we'll have the birding time of our lives as we immerse ourselves in one of the richest places for wildlife on Earth.
Following our week in the Pantanal, we'll head north to the Garden of the Amazon, a delightful little family-run lodge that sits at the ecotone between the Cerrado and Amazon to search for the ultra-rare and only recently rediscovered Cone-billed Tanager (yes, we have its address!), as well as a great variety of Amazonian specialties such as Gould's Toucanet, Black-girdled Barbet, Blue-cheeked Jacamar, Tooth-billed and Scaly-breasted wrens, six species of manakins, and much more! Join us next summer for this great Brazilian adventure.
