Winter can be a beautiful time to bird Southeast Brazil. There was a bit of rain for the first couple of days before the clouds retreated and we had fantastic clear, balmy days for the rest of the tour, which certainly helped the bird list. We saw over 300 for the first time on this tour, exceeding even the typically more productive spring tours. Of course numbers are only one aspect of any tour, and the great lodges and cheerful group combined to make it thoroughly enjoyable. My apologies for such a brief report, but time has caught up with me, and I’m writing this the day before my next Brazil tour.
