This optional extension to our Best of Brazil tour, visiting spectacular Iguaçu Falls National Park, will allow those with additional time the opportunity to see the world's largest waterfalls, while enjoying a few days of excellent birding in subtropical Atlantic Forest. Although there will be some overlap in the birdlife with Itatiaia, there will remain a number of new bird possibilities, ranging from the spectacular Black-fronted Piping-Guan to Pavonine Cuckoo, Variable Screech-Owl, Rusty-breasted Nunlet, Short-tailed Antthrush, Southern Antpipit, São Paulo Tyrannulet, Southern Bristle-Tyrant, Russet-winged Spadebill, Plush-crested Jay, and Creamy-bellied Gnatcatcher, among many others.
