Back from the heat, humidity and rain of Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest to the snow of Eastern Europe. It was a very good trip with too many birds and too many lifers to list here. Though I should mention the 7 new woodpecker species I saw, the many endemics and the close range hummingbirds at the lodge we stayed at. This snapshot here is of a Black Jacobin hummingbird which was one of the most common. I will post more notes and photos in the coming days.
