This month will be dedicated to travel abroad, taking part on Travel Shows and meeting partners and some of our regular clientes too, within USA.
But, we also want to share with your guests & potential new clients that we just added two more guide to our Guide Team: Thiago Rodrigues that can guide anywhere and everywhere at the Brazilian Northeast, showing the rare of the rarest of the Brazilian Endemics such the Araripe Manakin and Lear’s Macaw.
And, for the Brazilian Southeast, we would like to welcome Hudson Martins, that lives at the foothills of the Itatiaia National Park, being a very good guide for birders and photographers!
Their resumé are already available at:
This month we started with an scouting trip at the County of Pacatuba, which is close to Aracaju, the capital of the Brazilian State Sergipe. I was with Bruno Almeida, which is a native biologist with great knowledge on shore birds and, now, wants to learn more about forest and Caatinga birds. We left at 4:30 am. It took us about one hour to reach the first Bird spot…And, we couldn´t have a better start: Pectoral Antwren! We took pictures without the use of play back, with zero stress for this lovely bird…Well, someone already said: ” Every time you go Birding you shall miss a bird that you expect to see & will see a bird that you DIDN´T expect to see”…In this case, a Blond-Crested Woodpecker, in a open field!!!
And, since “The show has to go on”…In two weeks, after attending the Brazilian Bird Fair, aka, AVISTAR, I will be guiding a father & his son to the wonderful Carajas National Forest, with about 600 species of birds, including Harpy Eagle, with an active nest…Ending with a fabulous Birding & & Jaguar Photo Safari, at the Brazilian Pantanal.
Trip Highlights June, 2017.

Surely, we will be very pleased if, you book a Custom Tour for these two places, last mentioned or a Fixed Departure for the Pantanal!
November letf many good memories!…Paulo Boute, presented, for free, a Birdwatching Course, for Local Guides, at the National Forest of Carajas. There, he also had the chance to vídeo & photograph the White Bellbird. Surely, one of the birds that impressed most his students. Combined with that, Paulo also guided at the Brazilian Northeast, where he drove for about 3.000 miles, searching the rarest of the rare, such the Araripe Manakin and the Lear´s Macaw.
Quite a good warm up for another Big Birding Tour thru. the Brazilian Northeast, that he will be doing on the month of December, exploring a new location, where the Scarlet-throated Tanager comes to a feeder!!!
Boute Expeditions é a única empresa de turismo, que tem dois escritórios no Brasil: Um em Mato Grosso, onde nós levou excursões para o Pantanal e da Floresta Amazônica, e, a segunda, em Sergipe, onde nós levou passeios thru. do Nordeste brasileiro. As razões são muito claras … De novembro a abril é a estação das chuvas, em Mato Grosso e no Nordeste, é o oposto: estação seca. Devido que, em dezembro passado, tivemos duas viagens maravilhosas para o Nordeste brasileiro … Não apenas porque tivemos alguns dos mais raros pássaros do Brasil, como o araripe e Lear’s Macaw, mas, também, porque, vamos definir novos parceiros , como o Sitio Pau Preto, que está localizado no coração da Caatinga, a única vegetação endemica do Brasil. Sitio Pau Preto tem um alimentador de pássaros incrível !!! The Scarlet-caburé vai lá !!! Então, pergunto que, em janeiro deste ano, vamos continuar a tomar convidados a este lugar maravilhoso !!!
