SE Brazil [2022]

Blue-eyed Ground dove

In 2015 we first visited Brazil with a 3-week trip to the Northeast. After several other trips in South America it was time to return to Brazil and a trip in the Southeast seemed a good choice.

From São Paulo we made roundtrip visiting Itatiaia NP – Nova Friburgo – Mata dos Caetes – Santa Teresa – RN Vale – Santuario do Caraca – Cerro de Cipo – Montes Claros – Botumirim – Estrema – Pompeu – Serra da Canastra – Intervales. A very nice combination of Atlantic rainforest and some drier inland places (although given that it was the rainy season even inland places were wet). In total we saw 443 species, of which 138(!) were lifers.
