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 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 Otter

Capped Heron
Orange-winged Parrot

Pale-legged Horonero

White-headed Marsh Tyrant
