About This Country

The vast expenses of Brazil contain some of South America’s least known and most endangered birds. This huge country boasts an impressive bird list of more than 1800 species, but it is the very high number of endemics, more than 200 in total, that will entice you to visit.

Many of these endemics live in the humid hill forests along the Atlantic coast, but a considerable number are found in the drier habitats of Northeast Brazil where biomes range from humid Atlantic Forest to caatinga and cerrado woodlands.

The reserves we promote on this site will help you see species such as White-collared Kite, Lear’s Macaw, Broad-tipped Hermit, Spotted Piculet, Silvery-cheeked Antshrike, Caatinga Parakeet, Caatinga Cacholote, Araripe Manakin, Seven-colored Tanager, Hook-billed Hermit, Black-capped Screech-Owl, White-winged Potoo, Banded Cotinga, Slender Antbird, Band-tailed and Bahia antwrens, Pink-legged Graveteiro, Bahia Spinetail, Bahia Tyrannulet, Plumbeous Antvireo, Salvadori’s Antwren, Grey-breasted Parakeet, Ochraceous Piculet, and many more.
