3x3days trios in Brazil end July August 2022 Including Cherry-throated Tanager & Blue-eared Ground-Dove (1 Viewer)

Hi all
1. I am planning 3 x3 day trips to Brazil 28-31st July (including the stunning Critically endangered Cherry-throated Tanager), 4-7th August and 11-14th of August (including the Critically endangered Blue-eared Ground-Dove). They will be intensive birding trips to try and see these and as many other targets as possible. I am looking for other like-minded people (1-3) to join and share costs preferably sharing rooms (but not essential). There would be the potential for other birding in between.

July 29th 2022 - Vargem Alta (Cherry-throated Tanager place). Rest of the day birding the area.
July 30th 2022 - if we get the tanager full day birding Linhares area
July 31st 2022 - depend on flight time back to Belo Horizonte, morning birding Vargem Alta area.

Tour 2:
August 4th 2022 - afternoon depart from Belo Horizonte to Pompeu. Overnight Pompeu.
August 5th 2022 - full day birding Pompeu area. Overnight Pompeu.
