Brazil Pantanal day #1

Brazil Pantanal day #1



After a long and exhausting trip, including lost luggage (still!) and delayed flights we finally arrived last night at Porto Jofre in the Pantanal. 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:

Jaguar

Giant Otter

Capped Heron

Orange-winged Parrot

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.
