Brazil - Birding Trip - 10 August 2013 to 9 September 2013

It was time to get back to South America and rediscover the fun we had had in Sacha and Napo Wildlife Centre in Eucador in 2006. Where would we find the most new birds for this region? It turned out to be Brazil. After trying to contact a few lodges we settled on a route that allowed birding at two different altitudes in the Atlantic forest (Val das Taquaras and Serra dos Tucanos) and a third lodge in the Amazon (Cristalino). In this trip we managed our birding and travel ourselves so could make it a bit more relaxed. Birding in South America can be pretty overwhelming.

We left Brisbane at 6:40 am (10 August) and travelled via Sydney and Santiago to Rio de Janeiro GIG where we stayed a night at Novotel Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont. The hotel was only across the road from the domestic airport.

Vale das Taquaras Lodge (

We were picked up from our hotel at about 10:00 am (11 August) by Lila who made a round trip from the lodge, about 3 hours each way. Our host, Lila Ferrez ( kindly drove us to the lodge and we stopped along the way at a hummingbird feeder. Here we saw mid-altitude birds – Violaceous Euphonia, Chestnut-bellied Euphonia and Blue-naped Chlorophonia. Leaving the highway there is several kilometers of dirt road to reach the lodge that can be inaccessible during wet weather.

The lodge and gardens are at an altitude of 1000 m, and are very pretty and the temperature is quite cool. We often sat on the front verandah having coffee and watching the hummingbirds at feeders. We even photographed Violet-capped Woodnymphs and White-throated Hummingbirds with our pocket camera. Lila made sure we were well fed and comfortable. We went to the roost of a Tawny-browed Owl in an afternoon and saw the Sharpbill in this area. There are several walks from the lodge which can be birded independently. We also saw Brown Tinamou and a Slaty-breasted Wood-Rail that was attracted by corn to a hide on one of the trails.

The bird guide and gardener at the lodge, Ronaldo took us to some further away areas and Lila also took us out in her car to some other local habitats. A walk around the property via the ‘German House’ took us near a swamp where we saw the White-throated Spadebill. Another tiny bird was the Eared Pygmy-Tyrant, which we saw with Ronaldo and higher up we saw the Hooded Berryeater. In the lodge gardens we eventually got onto the Spot-billed and Saffron Toucanets. Also in the gardens we found the Bare-throated Bellbird (heard first) and the Swallow-tailed Cotinga and Ruby-crowned Tanager. Another great bird was the Slaty Bristlefront, which responded well to the tape but it took a bit to get it to a place we could see it. The Bertony’s and Ochre-rumped Antbirds were seen along a track in wet areas of low forest vegetation.

Lila drove us back to our hotel on 18 August where we stayed one night. The next morning we walked to the airport to catch our flight from Rio de Janeiro – Santos Dumont with stops in Sao Paulo, Campinas and Cuiaba to arrive at Alta Floresta. This town seemed like the frontier to the Amazon, hot and humid and with new construction everywhere. Our hotel was the Floresta Amazonica hotel where we paid for two days ourselves (19 and 20th). The last morning was part of the Cristalino package which was the luxury (expensive) part of the trip.

The Floresta Amazonica hotel has its own patch of forest behind the buildings that has several trails. We familiarized ourselves with the Scarlet, Blue-and-yellow, Chestnut-fronted and Red-bellied Macaws and Black Spider Monkeys in the forest patch. The Harpy Eagle’s nest was unfortunately not occupied, must have been the alternate year. The grounds of the hotel were a favoured habitat of the agouti, visible in the evenings. Parrots were in good numbers including Crimson-bellied Parakeet and Red-fan Parrots. We also saw Lettered, Chestnut-eared and Red-necked Aracaris. Once we heard the distracting calls of the Screaming Piha, we knew we were in the Amazon again.

Cristalino Jungle Lodge (

On the 21st we travelled to Cristalino lodge for 8 nights. A small van picked us up from the hotel with a number of others and we drove to the Telerpires River where we went by boat, turning into the Cristalino R. Birding up the river provided Swallow-winged Puffbird and White-banded Swallow. While at the lodge, we ventured to all the different bird habitats either from the lodge or via trails accessed by boats. We had a bird specialist guide, Micah Riegner (Mike) most of the time, which was great as we could concentrate on birding.

The Bare-faced Curassow wanders around the grounds and a Ruby-topaz Hummingbird was also in the lodge grounds. Blackish Nightjar roosted in the eaves of one of the buildings and other night birds seen included Mottled Owl and Ocellated Poorwill which Mike tracked down from its call. It had the curious behaviour of flying vertically up and down from a branch. We spent some time on the river to find the very colourful Pied Lapwing, Black-collared Swallow and Amazonian Umbrellabird. Back at the boat drop off car park we were lucky to get on to a Slaty-backed Forest-falcon.

A memorable afternoon was spent behind a blind watching a small water hole. Included in the 40 birds seen while sitting were Great Tinamou, Rudy Quail-dove, White-flanked Antwren, White-browed Antbird, Band-tailed Antbird, Bare-eyed Antbird, Black-spotted Bare-eye and Snow-capped Manakin. We saw many birds from the towers and had nice views looking down on Pygmy Antwrens and scope views of a White-browed Purpletuft. Near a tapir wallow we saw the Flame-crowned Manakin and took a photo of it through the telescope.

The forest contained a lot of walking-stick palms but it was much drier than you’d expect and we found that many ground dwelling birds such as ant-thrushes were not around. On our last day we succeeded in seeing the Dark-winged Trumpeter, fantastic, glad were able to spend the time in this area. We really enjoyed the butterflies and our animal list is below.

Serra Dos Tucanos Lodge (

We left Cristalino Lodge on the 29 August and flew back to Rio de Janerio where we had one night back at the hotel Novotel Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont and on the 30th we arrived at our last lodge, Serra Dos Tucanos. This lodge provided access to forests at mid altitudes of between 300 and 1800m. Our stay here included the transfers from our hotel and back to the airport and we paid for travel to a number of trails including guiding by Andy Foster. We birded around the lodge and trails in the grounds by ourselves.

In the gardens and on the trail from the lodge we saw Black-cheeked Gnateater, Slaty-breasted Wood-rail and the Maroon-bellied Parakeets visited the feed tables for bananas. We walked the Theodoro trail in the morning and back to the Cedae trail in the afternoon for the second day. This provided Scaled Woodcreeper, Ferruginous Antbird and Black-throated Grosbeak. We visited the Cedae Trail again with John Rowley (Field Guides guide for a new group about to arrive) on our last morning for good looks at Gray-hooded Attila and finished off with the White-spotted Woodpecker.

The third morning was spent at the Regua Wetland seeing Yellow-lored Tody-flycatcher and Crescent-chested Puffbird. Also the Sooretama Slaty-antshrike was tracked down in the dry scubby vegetation above the wetland. Day four was spent on the Bamboo trail, a wet and muddy trail where I saw the Cryptic Antthrush cross the track at the same spot as the Slaty Bristlefront had dived under a bush. Another little creek crossing featured both Star-throated Antwren and Spix’s Spinetail. Rufous-breasted Leaftossser was a highlight and we also saw Sharp-billed Treehunter.

We went to high altitude for day 5 (Pico Caledonian) driving as high as the car could make it and then walking. At the very top we searched for the Itatiaia Spinetail and found it near the raised walkway steps. We could look down into the valley below and see the evidence of the recent landslides. On the way back a Mouse-colored Tapaculo ventured close enough to the track for us to get good looks. We did the 3-toed Jacamar excursion (4/9) and saw the Jacamar along with many other birds including Firewood Gatherer, Toco Toucan and Aplomado Falcon.

On day 7 we visited the Serra dos Orgaos National Park where we found a Half-collared Sparrow and White-bibbed Antbird and Pale-browed Treehunter. The last organized trip (6/9) was to Porto Azul. The trail started out alongside a small wetland/creek where we at last saw the Sharp-tailed Streamcreeper having looked for it in the fast flowing stream at the lodge whenever we had the chance. On the other side of the track it was amazing to see the Black-billed Scythebill, which we had missed at Lila’s lodge. We also saw and Dusky-tailed Antbird and Orange-eyed Thornbird. While I find it is hard to keep all the birds fresh in my mind I will be at a new level of experience when we again go to South America. Thanks to Andy and the driver who helped us get on to the array of different birds.

We left Serra dos Tucanos Lodge on the 7 September and flew home from Rio De Janeiro GIG via Santiago, Auckland and Sydney to Brisbane to arrive on Monday 9th.
