Dear Ken and Katrina,
Whilst under the false impression we might be able to afford to travel to 
Brazil this year to visit hubby’s family and do a bit of extra travel, I 
compiled a bit of a list of websites related to Brazil – lucky you, if you get 
there, the Pantanal would be really worth visiting – and of course the Amazon 
region if you can get that far north.

Have fun!

Firstly, if you want bird guides:
Birds of Brazil by Kevin Zimmer is supposed to be coming out “soon” (I wouldn’t 
expect it anytime soon though) – I expect it will be really good guide when it 
does come out so keep an eye on it.

Souza, Deodato. All the birds of Brazil: an identification guide. > (2006 
second edition). 352 pp., colour illustrations, maps. AU$95.00 – available 
through Andrew Isles Natural History Books

Websites (in no particular order, sorry, you’ll jst have to trawl through): - Brazilian Ornithological 
Association (Portuguese) - some useful links - I think there are pics and calls 
on this site. Edson Endrigo I think would be a good contact. - in Portuguese, but if you understand a bit of 
Spanish you’d probably make some sense of it - birding the 
Pantanal - tours - tours - links
 - someone’s blog I found – particularly good on Brasilia, which is where the 
family is. - good site but link not 
currently working – keep trying – it was a site set up to celebrate 500 years 
since the Portuguese went to Brazil.
