End of a great tour!

Tour continues…..

Our current tour continues with some wonderful birding. We have experienced some heavy summer rains but thankfully usually towards the end of of each day so it hasnt affected the birding too much! A few more photos from the last couple of days, birding on the edge of a huge thunder storm (without getting wet!), White-barred Piculet and Sharpbill (record shot) (Andy Foster)

Open country birding

As our tour continues we have just returned from a day of open country birding, a nice contrast having spent the last 4 days surrounded by forest! As always we saw lots of spectacular birds including Three-toed Jacamar, Black-necked Aracari, Serra Antwren, White-barred Piculet, Red-legged Seriema, White-eared Puffbird, Sapphire-spangled Emerald, Streamer-tailed Tyrant, Sharp-tailed Streamcreeper, Blackish Rail, Gilt-edged Tanager and Tawny-headed Swallow. Photos from today include Itororo Lodge at dawn, Sapphire-spangled Emerald and Savanna Hawk (Andy Foster)

Our current tour continues with another couple of productive days in the field birding Macae de Cima and the Cedae Trail. Lots of great birds! A few photos from the last couple of days, Black-billed Scythebill, Pin-tailed Manakin and Rufous-headed Tanager (Andy Foster)
