Birding, or birdwatching is a relaxing and fascinating activity, which can be practiced by children, young and adults. It is one of the most valued hobbies all over the world. It has been estimated that there are more than 80,000,000 people who watch wild birds today. It is a really gratifying and enchanting practice, which has an emotionally positive effect, relieving us from the daily stress.

Among the vertebrate animals, birds constitute the most widespread group that can be observed in its natural habitat, since they are colorful, attractive, interesting, and charming animals. Besides all of these attributes,many species can sing copiously, inspiring the artistic soul and giving pleasure to generations of people.

Birdwatchers are also responsible for most of the acquired knowlodge about the avifauna of many countries, since they collect pictures, video images or records of songs. These activities can contribute to help competent authorities manage their local natural resources and promoting tourism.

Santa Catarina has three important biomes: atlantic forest, araucárias forest and the southern fields. It is the third Brazilian state with more preserved areas. Harboring around 470 bird species, which some are endemic and others endangered.

The Atlantic Forest is considered the second tropical Forest with more biodiversity in the whole world. It's present through the brazilian atlantic coast upon 17 States. Its fauna and flora are nowadays priority on conservation, with more than 1,020 bird species and around 20 thousands plant species. The Vinaceous Parrot (Amazona vinacea), Channel-billed Toucan (Ramphastos vitellinus) and the Festive Coquete (Lophornis chalybeus)l represents some of the rich avifauna.

The araucaria forests is an important transition biome between the humid atlantic forest and the southern fields. It is a humid subtropical forest wich has the typical Paraná pine tree (Araucaria angustifolia) dominating the landscape. Highly exploited in the past now big remnants are very valorized with now many regenerating areas. Therefore the Azure Jay (Cyanocorax caeruleus), Red-spectacled Parrot (Amazona pretrei) and the Black-capped Piprites (Piprites pileata) can be more abundant again.

Normally at an altitude of more than 1,200 m, the southern fields are big open áreas with a roky soil and dominated by grass. Where the arboreal vegetation is low with shallow roots. Along with lagoons and marsh áreas this biome is great for water birds. The Black-necked Swan (Cygnus melanchoriphus), Black-headed Duck (Heteronetta atricapilla), Dot-winged Crake (Porzana spiloptera) are endemic to this biome in Brazil.

Technical Opinion:
This survey was conducted in Rio do Rastro Eco Resort which is situated at 1400 meters altitude in the mountain river trail belonging to the municipality of Bom Jardim da Serra, southern state of Santa Catarina. The biome is the araucaria forest with stretches in regeneration.

They walked up open trails in the woods and open fields with grasses. with two output field per day for a period of five days. An early morning and another in the late afternoon. From 20 to 25 October 2009.

The study area is in a good stage of forest regeneration, with stretches of primary forest, the presence of ancient xaxins indicates good health of the forest. This fact gives then a more varied range of birds. Demonstrated the sighting of species that indicate a well-preserved, as the guan (Penelope obscura) and Woodcreeper scaled-do-sul (Lepidocolaptes falcinellus).

Biome considered critically endangered by remaining only about 3% of the original 200 000 km ². Important region where the rainforest is partly replaced by vegetable formation whose main representative of the Brazilian pine (Araucaria augustifolia). Which species has specialized and restricted to this biome as grimpeiro (Leptasthenura setaria) and grimperinho (Leptasthenura striolata).

This survey identified 67 species of birds. Most forestry, or fully or partially dependent on the forest environment. And migrant species are returning from the trip as taperuçu-toed (Streptoprocne zonaris) and scissors (Tynannus savannah). Taking into account previous photographic records made on site passes this number to 71.

With diverse and abundant birdlife and the presence of charismatic species, rare and endangered species, as well as good accessibility and safety in their tracks and gazebo make the Rio do Rastro Eco Resort is able to explore ecotourism bird watching and of national public internationally.
