MAY, 2017

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.

This is just one of the highlights of our multiple tours, we had this September, including a Harpy Eagle at the Cristalino Jungle Lodge & a lek of Amazonian Umbrella Birds!!!

We, highly, recommend you to plan a trip to the Pantanal, including Alta Floresta & Atlantic Forest, sometime, between June to October. It can produce up to 500 species of birds!!!

During the month of October, we had tours covering the Pantanal, in both Brazilian States:
Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul, as well, Parque das Emas and, last but, not least:
Intervales and the Incredible Parque do Zizo!!! Where we had,  the largest monkey of South América: The Southern Muriqui Monkey!!! We spent about one entire our with them! It was a group of 15 primates, being three mothers with their babies!!! One of the vídeos can be seen at:
Birding was spectacular with lots of photos of the Giant Antshrike!!!

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 !!!

November, 12th – 26th.
April, 14th – 28th.
