Saibadela trip

This past weekend from 12th to 15th of November, the park received a group of birders from the Centro de Estudos Ornitológico de São Paulo (CEO), to perform a census  on Saibadela Nucleus. With the help of the birding guides of the park, they managed to identify 148 species during the expedition, despite constant rain. Among the highlights were: Yellow-legged Tinamous vocalizing around the lodges, 2 Fasciated Tiger Herons at Quilombo River,  Ash-throated Crake, Blue-bellied Parrot,  Lesser Swalow-tailed Swift (first recording in the park), Azure Jay, Black-headed Berryeater, Salvadori's Antwren and Long-billed Wren.
