Around 6 am from your hotel, with an ornithologist guide, binoculars and a telescope in hand, we begin a walk through the jungle and nearby paths in search of the most emblematic birds in the area. In La Lorenza you can find up to 300 species (registered).
It is possible to observe the golden-crested woodpecker and the robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakin, varieties of Black-breasted plovercrest (especially standing out the rough-billed hummingbird, a very territorial species so it is easy to see it always in the same place), the red-ruffed fruit-crow with its scarlet chest, different species of tanagers and euphonias, woodcreepers and of course the two species of surucua trogon and black-throated trogon.
With some luck and patience (with increased chances during the Argentinean winter – June to August), it is possible to spot two species of toucans less famous or popular than the toco toucan but of fascinating coloration, such as the chesnut-eared aracari and the spot-billed toucanet, the latter of great value since it is endemic to the Atlantic Forest.
You will go into nature to discover what it has prepared for you this morning! While you learn about the behavior of birds, their ecological value, and characteristics that make them unique.
This outing is suitable for amateurs as well as beginners in bird watching and photography. It is led by ornithological guides specialized in the Atlantic Forest. The visit culminates in our deck with a panoramic view of the Paraná River sharing drinks and something delicious to snack on.
