ABOUT THE BIRDING
The primary birding attraction at Pereque is the endangered Black-hooded Antwren, a species once thought to be extinct that was re-discovered in some remnant forest patches outside town. The species hadn't been seen for over 100 years before its re-discovery in 1987. The site is located in a rural agricultural area where some other roadside birding can be productive. Other possibilities in the area include Channel-billed Toucan, Yellow-fronted Woodpecker, Blond-crested Woodpecker, Neotropical River Warbler, Brazilian Tanager, Red-necked Tanager, and Half-collared Sparrow, the latter a recent split from Pectoral Sparrow and a Brazilian endemic.
LOCATION OF SITE
Pereque is located near the coastal town of Parati on the Atlantic coast northwest of Ubatuba.
