Iguacu Falls

Optional pre-trip to Iguaçu for two+ days of birding amidst the splendor of the world’s largest waterfalls. Many Atlantic Forest specialties.

The thunderous cataracts of Iguaçu, the world’s largest waterfalls, will be the backdrop for some great birding. We will explore lush forests in search of some of Brazil’s most spectacular birds, including Black-fronted Piping-Guan; Robust and Blond-crested woodpeckers; Red-ruffed Fruitcrow; Spot-billed Toucanet; Toco and Red-breasted toucans; Surucua Trogon; Rufous-capped Motmot; and Plush-crested Jay. We will also search for some of the rarer endemic passerines, such as Russet-winged Spadebill, São Paulo Tyrannulet, and Creamy-bellied Gnatcatcher.

Single-site pre-trip, with excellent hotel situated directly opposite spectacular Iguaçu Falls; multiple overlooks of the falls within very short walk from hotel; excellent food; forest birding along level jeep track through beautiful forest; one round-trip internal flight; no long drives; easy terrain; full mornings in the field; arrival afternoon and departure morning days have optional birding, sightseeing, or leisure; both full days in the field have a mid-morning snack and a picnic lunch.
