Lajedo dos Beija-Flores is one of the principal biodiversity hotspots in Brazil. And a hotspot for hummingbirds.
Located in the municipality of Boa Nova, Bahia, Lajedo dos Beija-Flores is one of the principal biodiversity hotspots in Brazil. It is a great place for birders and photographers. With about 107 hectares on the outskirts of the Boa Nova National Park and within the Boa Nova Wildlife Refuge area. Boa Nova is home to one of the greatest biodiversity in this group, with approximately 460 species of birds and, in Lajedo dos Beija-flores and its surroundings, around 260 have already been recorded. The gardens with more than 4,000 seedlings of around 70 species of plants attract many hummingbirds and various other birds. There are trails, guides and several platforms designed to provide the best angles for observation and bird photography.
Among the target species most sought after by observers and which are possible to find in Lajedo, we can highlight two endangered species, the Slender Antbird and the Hook-billed Hermit, besides, of course, the Ruby-topaz Hummingbird, a migratory species that visits us in summer. And talking of hummingbirds, we cannot fail to mention that, of the 24 species registered in Boa Nova, 18 of them frequent our gardens.
