“Vem Passarinhar” means “Come Birding” in Portuguese and for the first time we were able to stage this important event of the calendar year here at REGUA’s private reserve.
This is a marvellous opportunity to show the birdwatchers from Rio de Janeiro city and its environs what we are doing to protect their bird habitat in the reserve. Fortunately our brilliant bird guide Adilei was available to treat the bird watchers to some stunning birds with great views and photographic opportunities.
Indeed Adilei led the entire group to the Schincariol trail to see the White-bibbed Antbird, Southern Antpipit and long views of the Shrike-like Cotinga amongst so many other species.
This is a great commendation where REGUA is seen as a committed conservation project with a keen team.
The staff cooked terrific food and everyone was very happy with the event. There were many visitors of all ages with the adults especially keen to see their children get involved in the day’s action.
It is certainly that, an action packed two day event but worth every moment if all these people begin to see the fauna as something beautiful and to be proud of.
We are cultivating the tender feeling of environmental care and next year I am sure we shall see more people visiting.
