Still sorting through photos from tours last year, this one brings back great memmories from a tour to the Pantanal, we were so lucky to spend several minutes watching this Jaguar by ourselves, beautiful! Why not join us on one of our Pantanal tours later this year and see just how amazing the Pantanal and its wildlife is! (Photo Andy Foster)

Just been going back through some photos from the last couple of tours. The feeders at Itororo are always great value with regular visits from many good looking species! As we now head out of our summer time slowly into “autumn” the feeders will start to get very busy again during our winter months of May through to September.

The last few days of the Naturetrek tour were spent at Regua. Some very hot but productive days seeing species such as Sooretama Slaty Antshrike, Southern Antpipit, Yellow-fronted Woodpecker, Reddish Hermit, Long-billed Wren, Black-capped Foliage Gleaner, Scaled Antbird, Silvery-flanked Antwren, Giant Snipe, Mottled Owl, Capped Heron, Unicoloured Antwren, Rufous-capped Motmot and Chesnut-backed Antshrike. A fantastic tour…trip report coming soon! Photo below is of Mottled Owl (Andy Foster)
We are well into our Naturetrek tour now and have just spent the morning around the Itororo Lodge trails. A great morning with some very rewarding sightings! The main highlight was a very responsive and obliging Variegated Antpitta, this bird just sat right in front of us for over 2 minutes! Other good birds for the morning included Rufous Gnateater, Serra do Mar Tyrant Manakin, Cryptic Antthrush and Swallow-tailed Kite amongst others. Photo below is Variegated Antpitta (Andy Foster)
