Birds of the Atlantic Rainforest

Brazil is one of the richest countries in the world in bird species and the region between Curitiba and the Parana coast offers unique diversity, as it is in a transition zone between two very different environments: the Aracauria forest and the Atlantic Rainforest.

here to watch a recent video from Bom dia Brasil, a Brazilian TV program, showing some local species and the scenery around Morretes, one of the oldest colonial towns in Parana.

Tips from
Brazil Ecojourneys:

A great way to visit this area is to make the train journey from Curitiba to Morretes. The train leaves daily and the journey takes 3 hours.

If you have more time you could stay overnight after the
train journey in a local lodge to best enjoy the region.

For the more adventurous
our Atlantic Rainforest expedition gives you a greater insight into this unique environment.

Special birdwatching departures can be arranged with an ornithologist guide. Please

Thanks for interesting post with great tips. Birdwatching is always pleasure for me. Brazil is third richest country in term of bird populations. You can found more than 1500 spices there.
