A birding naturalist, Miguel has been studying the flora and fauna of the subtropical rainforest for over 20 years. His focus includes birdsong identification in northern Argentina and southern Brazil. A chief naturalist in Iguazú for six years, Mighel is the co-author of the inventory to the Birds of Iguazú National park. His great field expertise in the Pantanal led to important discoveries such as the location of secret nests of the elusive harpy eagle in southern Brazil. What he enjoys the most is sharing his knowledge and showing unique bird and wildlife species to other people.
