Quantcast

On last holiday, Jun 8th, I travelled  with my wife to Guarapuava, Paraná state.

It was pretty cold, 8 degrees Celcius, which is too cold to me. I visited the Parque das Araucáreas, a local park that still preserves the Araucaria angustifolia, or Parana pine, which used to be very common in this state, but unfortunately is threatened nowadays.

Inside the park, everything was too quiet.

But in the few moments I could hear something, this wonderful Chestnut-headed Tanager called just besides where I was. It was feeding itself, then I was able to get some pictures.

On the other day, June 9th, I got the road that takes to the São Francisco waterfall. Again, it was too cold, cloudy. But I could see this two pretty birds.

During the afternoon, I went to a corner inside the city, where this Buff-necked Ibis usually spend the afternoon feeding.
