Mato Grosso do Sul: Day 6&7 Pousada Galeria Artes and ESTC2014 Eco-tourism conference

Mato Grosso do Sul: Day 6&7 Pousada Galeria Artes and ESTC2014 Eco-tourism conference

DAY 6: Once again I have to travel. I would really appreciate another day in the Pantanal at Fazenda Baia Grande, especially as I’m quite enjoying spotting birds I don’t know, but instead i’ll have to get out the OUP birdbook: A fieldguide to the Birds of Brazil when I get back to Rio.

Mato Grosso do Sul: Day 3 Bonito to Miranda

Today I wake up in Bonito, not with the cocks crowing but with the sound of the Chaco Chachalaca birds passing overhead, so it seems like a good time to get the camera out. Pousada Olho d’Agua is fabulous for birding and within minutes I’ve managed to get great pics of a redbeaked toco Toucan, […]
