“Birds of the Brazilian Northeast" - a Queens County Bird Club presentation @ Alley Pond Environmental Center temporary building | New York | United States

Queens County Bird Club presents “The Birds of the Brazilian Northeast”. Brazilian naturalist Paulo Boute will share his experiences in guiding avid birders through the Brazilian Northeast.
Brazil is larger in area than the lower 48 states of the U.S. But it has only one single endemic ecoregion: the Caatinga, which is located in the northeast part of the country. In eons past, it was home of many types of dinosaurs; now, it is home of the rarest of the rare among Brazilian birds, such the Araripe Manakin, Lear´s Macaw, Scarlet-throated Tanager, Caatinga Antwren, White-browed Guan , Gray-bellied and Caatinga Parakeet and much more… including birds of the Atlantic Forest, such the Seven-colored Tanager and White-winged Cotinga . (At the Brazilian Northeast, the Atlantic Forest also has plants of the Amazon Forest, since it is believed both forests were connected, in the past.)
Light refreshments served starting 7:30 pm. Presentation begins at 8:00 pm.
