Very few birding trips to Brazil can be so exciting like this one!
Why? First because, Manaus is in everybody´s imagination, since their childhood, as one of the most distant destinations!
When they heard first about Manaus, a city located in the heart of the largest tropical forest of the World: The Amazon Forest, combined with the location by the largest River, in amount of water of the world: The Amazon River! The imagination flies!...
But, if, in one hand the visitor will not find monkeys or jaguars walking on the streets, along the people, eventually, they will have Scarlet Macaws flying by and depending on the time of the year( Nov-Jan), we can have a flock of up to 12.000 White-winged Parakeets, roosting at downtown! The excitement continues with the other locations to be visited, such the Presidente Figueiredo where, up 15 Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock leking. In Novo Airão: The lek of Wire-tailed Manakin, is mind blowing! And, last but, not least: Manacapuru may offer chances to watch the Point-tailed Palmcreeper( The only Palmcreeper for the entire South America) & One of the most beautiful hummingbirds of the Amazon Forest & Brazil: The Fiery Topaz that, eventually, can be combined with the magnificent Purple-breasted Cotinga.
