BIRDWATCHING IN ESPÍRITO SANTO

VITÓRIA

(CAPITAL OF ES)

BIRDWATCHING LOCATIONS AND CONTACT WITH NATURE

THE OCEAN

(SEABIRDS / MARINE BIRDS)

The Bay of Vitória is a good place for the observation of seabirds. Only very few birders explore the bay and the chances of finding new seabird species for the state of Espírito Santo are great. If you plan your visit during the reproduction period of the humpback whales, it is very likely and possible to do some whale watching as well, because Espírito Santo is their migration route.
