566 species in 3 weeks birding!....incredible; thanks for posting your report, Brazil sounds like the place to go.

And welcome to Birdforum!


Well-known member
Sounds like you had a great trip! Brasil is a fantastic country to bird in for so many reasons...

I spent from January to April this year as a volunteer guide at Cristalino - I love that place! Out of curiosity, do you know if you stayed in the new bungalows while there? If so, I'd be most interested to hear your opinion of them (I know, just a place to crash between birding and birding, however...)
