REGUA, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: 4 October

Arrived at REGUA very late last night and spent most of today taking it easy catching up with our good friends Nicholas, Raquel and Adilei. No birding today but 2 Blonde-crested Woodpecker and 2 (H) Tawny-browed Owl at Nicholas and Raquel's house, and a Fork-tailed Flycatcher and a Burrowing Owl nearby were a nice start to the trip. At the Conservation Centre, c.13 White-eyed Parakeets, 2 Orange-winged Parrots and a Green-barred Woodpecker (H) were noted, and the hummer feeders at the lodge were busy with lots of Black Jacobins, Swallow-tailed Hummingbirds, Violet-capped Woodnymphs and Glittering-throated Emeralds. Also notable was a Red-cowled Cardinal just outside the reserve entrance. Rained quite heavily for much of the day so no photos.

  1. Lovely stuff bud, all that whilst just taking it easy - not bad! Particularly jealous of the Burrowing Owl, I've got a think for those little guys. Enjoy your time there, look forward to the next update...
