Xaraés, a birders paradise
As one of our guests said in 2005 “Xaraés is a real birders paradise” . Its landscape is the southern Pantanal in a nutshell: all ecotypes are present, even during the driest months it still has swamps and a river with more or less stagnant or flowing water and even more important: it has the unique combination between cattle farming and nature conservation. All these factors together are highly attractive for birds, and their followers the human birdwatchers. Xaraés Ecotourism welcome amateurs but also professional ornithologists. Bilingual guides with an excellent knowledge of the area and the location of even the most reclusive and shy birds are always available.
Birds at Xaraés
Not only are all southern Pantanal ecotypes present at Xaraés but their area is also extensive enough for viable populations of several rare species. It is one of the better locations for Hyacinth Macaws. Flying over or searching for palmnuts, they always offer an unforgettable experience. Around the Pousada you can find several species of parrots, Campo Flickers, Ferruginous Pigmy-Owl, tanagers, Crested Oropendola, Troupials and, when there are enough flowers, our flying jewels, the hummingbirds.
