Observação Contemplativa de Aves

  In Brazil there are more than 2,000 different species of birds, and 45% of these species are concentrated in the Atlantic Forest. Paraty stands out in this scenario, being considered a true paradise for lovers of birdwatching. Thanks to its privileged location, it is possible to observe birds at sea level at an altitude of over 1,700 m on the same day.  More than 477 species of birds were recorded, 116 of which are endemic to the Atlantic Forest .

Oca Paraty is the first inn built for bird watching in Paraty. We have spacious chalets with skylights and large windows that allow bird watching during the day and night in the morning at a special time for bird watchers.

 

Our bilingual guides are specialized in bird watching and able to guide in different scenarios such as: terra nova mangrove, floating on the mambucaba river, gold trail at 1,500m altitude, exploration of the pereque-açu river and much more.

We invite our guests to walk along our trails and observe the different species in their natural habitat.

 

See below some of the species that can be observed at Oca Paraty.

The first record of the bird in Paraty was made at our inn. In the entire state of RJ it has only been seen twice in Angra dos Reis since 1825. The Socó Boi Escuro  inhabits rivers and streams that are clear of forests. Fragile in the face of human presence, this species has a specific habitat, whose disturbances, even small, reduce its presence, as the available food resources decrease.
