This holiday I am in my mother’s house, 1 hour by car from the Itatiaia National Park.

So, I wake up this morning and went to the park.

 

 

 

Itatiaia National Park

I took my wife and my brother to have a breakfast in a hotel, and while in the hotel, I went for birding.

It was a very short tour, but as always, a nice one. Itatiaia National Park is an amazing place for birding and being in contact with nature.

The next three photos were taken in the verand of the restaurante.

Black-eared Fairy / Heliothryx auritus
Brazilian Ruby / Clytolaema rubricauda
Green-headed Tanager / Tangara seledon

After the breakfast, I went to a place to try theSlaty Bristlefront, but it didn’t show up.

When leaving the park, while driving down towards the park entrance, we saw a family of Cebus apella.
