After a long and exhausting trip, including lost luggage (still!) and delayed flights we finally arrived last night at Porto Jofre in the . We are kindly hosted by Panthera.org in their lovely accommodation. I couldn’t wait for first light, and my first hour of birding in Latin America was indeed mind-blowing.

All those new sounds and sights. We took two boat trips today, with Pantanal Nature. Our main target was successful – we had awesome encounters with three different Jaguars – incredible! On top of that we saw tons of cool birds (eBird checklist here) and other animals.

Here is just a very quick taster – so much more to follow:

Giant

Capped Heron

Orange-winged

Pale-legged Horonero

White-headed Marsh Tyrant

I have been birding since the age of 9, and from the age of 15 I started working professionally in birding. I have been working for the Israeli Ornithological Center since 1998. I was a member of the Israeli rarities committee between 2001 - 2007. I have an MSc in Ecology from the Ben Gurion University. I did my research on the ecology of Nubian Nightjars in Israel, and spent hundreds of nights with these fascinating birds. I lead tours in Israel, and especially focus on Nubian Nightjars obviously. I traveled and birded Asia extensively, and also Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and North America. I am married to my lovely wife Adva and father to two sons - Uri and Noam, and one daughter - Libby. Currently I live in Norwich, where I am starting a PhD project at UEA.
