Send a message to a Birding Pal

You don't need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal. However these are serious birdwatchers who are willing to help. It is a privilege to contact them. Your message should reflect decent respect.

A Birding Pal does not charge a fee, however you should pay for their expenses, transportation costs, entrance fees, meals, etc.

Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can. You might write to someone who is traveling, so write to more than one Pal, and be patient. Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that everything is okay.

Let us know when you are going to meet a Pal, and then let us know how it went.

Happy birding.

The biggest goal of Calyptura Expeditions is to put birding close together with conservation. The rarest species are the ones in most need of attention for their protection.

Focusing on taking birders into different habitats through specific regions of Brazil to find a desired selection of birds, endemic or target species.

Offering planned itineraries to clients as well as custom affordable and flexible packages to suit the birders needs, always at places with good accessibility and safety.

I'm "in the search for the rarest!". I'm curious to see your target list!

Area and hotspots
Sao Paulo, Trilha dos Tucanos, Ubatuba, Paraty, Itatiaia NP, Intervales EP, Regua (RJ), Pantanal, Amazon (Cristalino Jungle Lodge and central amazon on hotel boats).

Local birds
Black-hooded Antwren, Buff-throated Purpletuft, Fork-tailed Pygmy Tyrant
