Birds of Northeast Brazil & the Atlantic Forest, with Chuck Bragg of SMBAS. Zoom Evening Meeting, Tuesday, 5 October, 7:30 p.m..

Chuck Bragg has been a member of SMBAS since 1976. He has been, at various times, a board member and officer of SMBAS. He has led a particularly interesting life – feel free to ask about it at our Zoom meeting on Tuesday, October 5th.

More importantly, he enjoys being a birder and bird photographer. In January 2020 he went on a long-planned birding trip to northeast Brazil, sneaking it in just before COVID-19 began to shut down exotic excursions. What comes to most people’s minds when thinking about Brazil is Amazonia or the Pantanal, but Northeast Brazil contains a wider variety of habitats than the better-known regions. There are desert, mangrove coastline, scrubland, mountains, forests and rainforests – the variety is the attraction. NE Brazil has a lot of endemics – on this trip we saw a manakin that was not even discovered until 1996, and a macaw where the wild population was only found in 1978 (and got pictures of both!).

      I noticed that too. Taping started late, maybe 5-10 minutes into the show. Q&A afterwards indicates that it will be available but when and exactly where & how is yet to be determined. We haven’t recorded them previously, so this is new for us.

      Watch the blog. When the dust settles, I’ll post an announcement.
