The degraded remnant patches of Atlantic dry forest on the other side of the Serra dos Órgãos mountains are the stronghold of the threatened Three-toed Jacamar, a species at one time considered common, but now only found in a few locations and listed as Vulnerable by BirdLife International. We have an excellent chance of seeing this and many other species on this full day trip.
This excursion takes in a variety of habitats including remnant patches of Atlantic dry forest, open grassy plains and wetlands. Most of the birding from roadside stops.
