Boqueirão Sul. Beach – Restinga Tour.

Starts at Boqueirão Sul (Ilha Comprida) with a 6:30 AM breakfast followed by a short footpath at Namastê Hospedagem where we can see different kind of Thraupidae species (e.g. Brazilian Tanager, Palm Tanager, Blue Dacnis), Pipridae (Blue Manakin, White-bearded Manakin), and eventually some Green-backed Trogon, Lineated Woodpecker, among many others birds.

Then we will make an 8 kilometers hike along the beach towards the southern tip of the island (Trincheira) and back through the “restinga” vegetal formation. We will be able to see some really interesting and vulnerable species like Red-tailed parrot, Scarlet ibis and Restinga Tyrannulet, and a vast diversity of sea, beach and forest dwelling birds, such as Brown booby, Royal Tern, Sandwich Tern (erycognathus), Ringed Kingfisher, Austral Vermilion Flycatcher (austral winter) along with Guiana dolphins and Ghost crabs.

Finally, we will let ourselves be delighted by a delicate local caiçara lunch at an incredible place.
