Birding & camping

This October we had another motorhome birder from France, this is actually the best way to explore a big country where you have a great variety of environment and birds to see, a 4x4 car can also be very helpful during the raining season in the Atlantic Forest taking you to any trail .

Another nest

Another nest of the Helmeted Woodpecker was found this October/2013 at Carmo Road, this was the fourth nest of this species reported by the birding guides so far, they usually excavate their nests in Nectranda lanceolata or Schizolobium parahyba, commom trees in this region. The bird can be seem all the Carmo Valley.
