|Researching the paper at MZUSP|
I embarked on this research because there was a rather dodgy list that was being bandied around around the time of my arrival in Ubatuba. It had something like a hundred more species on it than could be properly documented, many were extremely unlikely and some were even Amazonian endemics.
|Sombre Hummingbird a Brazilian endemic|
|The common, colourful, endemic and endearing Green-headed Tanager|
|Red-necked Tanager, an Atlantic forest endemic and definitely very attractive.|
|Slaty Bristlefront, a real skulker|
|Spot-breasted Antvireo, easy to find in Ubatuba|
|Stripe-breasted Starthroat. This is a female, the last of many new species we |
found for the municipality. Elis found this one and interestingly, the only
other record for Ubatuba at the time was found by her, but sadly undocumented.
