Iguassu Falls = Read = The cherry on the top of the cake!!!

Posted Saturday 30th April 2011 at 20:15 by Paulo Boute
Hello !

Well, I was birding for two months non-stop(!).
And, I could have a better place to end my "trip maraton": Iguassu Falls!
This place is absolutely fantastic!!!
The scenary, the vegetation combined with perfect accommodation and excellent food!
I recommend everyone to go there - Specially, we got this non-stop flight: Cuiaba/Iguassu.
In time: The Black-fronted Piping-Guan is "nailed to the branch" there!

A Dream tha Become True!!!

Posted Wednesday 27th April 2011 at 07:35 by Paulo Boute
Hello !

I had been working as a Bird Leader in Brazil in the past 30 years.
Always, when asked about the Very Best Destination, I was including Iguassu Falls, where I am, at the moment.
But, I always was getting the same complain from potential guests - To fly from Cuiaba to Iguassu was necessary a flight connection in Sao Paulo, making the flight very long and tiring.
Yesterday, for the very first time, I had the pleasure of having a non-stop flight from Cuiaba...

Male Pileated Woodpecker

Posted Monday 25th April 2011 at 15:10 by Landenberg Birder
The male Pileated Woodpecker returned yesterday after a 48 hour absence. I have no idea of where he has been or when I will see him or his mate again. It is so strange that they came every day and then disappeared for 2 days. I am fairly new at this but I am very intrigued by their behavior. The little I do know is that I am very lucky to have them in our backyard eating from a tree 25 feet away from our window view!

Turkey Vulture Is Back, Central Oregon

The Turkey Vulture is not seen in Oregon all year around.

There are five sub species of the Turkey Vulture.

Our Turkey Vulture I believe is the Western Turkey Vulture, this sub species I have read is even broke down even further.

I read where at one point and time people thought the Vultures in general were a threat to livestock thus killed, this was found to be untrue and the facts are the Turkey Vulture not only smells out gas leaks in remote places...

Perfect Easter: Lots of Birds!

Posted Sunday 24th April 2011 at 15:40 by Paulo Boute
Hello !

I'm celebrating Easter on the company of 15 tour participants on a trip to the Pantanal.
We are seeing TONS of birds - On perfect light!
In April and May there is NO smoke or haze in the sky. It is a pity that the other tour companies don't offer trips to the Pantanal at this time of the year.

Happy Easter to Everyone!
