    Home to 1,971 bird species, Brazil is a birding paradise with more than half of the species found in South America. Many of the world’s most interesting bird species live in Brazil’s patchwork of habitats, including more than 260 endemics that occur nowhere else on Earth. Some are colorful and gaudy birds such as parrots, macaws, and toucans. Others are elegant, glittering gems such as hummingbirds, jacamars, cotingas, and manakins.
