Braulio was in Ecuador in February 2001 working as a consultant for the Jocotoco Foundation. He found a new population of the extremely rare (considered extinct couple of years ago) Pale-headed Brusch-Finch in less than a week working, not too bad for his first Ecuadorian and Andean birds experience!!!
Braulio is equipped with a 82mm KOWA 20-60X spotting telescope for seeing distant animals, SONY TCM-5000EV recording equipment, shotgun microphone and tapes for luring in rare and hard to see animals that respond to their own call bringing them into view, a spotlight for nocturnal viewing, and the appropriate bird, mammal identification books and updated checklist for your enjoyment.
He lives in Cuiabá with his wife and child son.
Braulio conducts EarthFoot's "4 Birding Tours in the Mato Grosso" experience.
