About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This book is the first in a collection of three volumes illustrating some species that make up the rich birdlife of the Brazilian state of Paraná, where – according to recent estimates – a total of 744 species occur. The bird chosen for the cover is the Araucaria Tit-spinetail (Grimpeiro in Portuguese), the bird-symbol of Curitiba, the state capital. This bird maintains a close symbiotic relationship with the Paraná-pine and only live on this kind of tree. These and numerous other facts and trivia are reported in the text by ornithologist Fernando C. Straube, accompanying 156 photos of award-winning photographer Marcelo Krause.

Summary in Portuguese:
Este livro é o primeiro de uma coleção de 3 volumes que ilustra algumas espécies que compõem a rica avifauna do estado do Paraná, onde ocorrem – segundo estimativas recentes – um total de 744 espécies. A aves escolhida para a capa é o Grimpeiro, ave-símbolo de Curitiba, capital do estado. O grimpeiro mantém uma estreita relação de simbiose com o pinheiro-do-paraná e somente vive nessa espécie de arvore. Ali o pequeno pássaro encontra proteção e também todos os tipos de animaizinhos, como larvas e pequenas borboletas, de que depende para sua alimentação, capturados enquanto se move no meio das grimpas ou em curtos e graciosos voos de perseguição. A árvore, por sua vez, tem suas frondes livres de insetos e, ainda, recebe uma grande ajuda do pássaro na polinização. Essas e outros inúmeros fatos e curiosidades estão relatados no texto do ornitólogo Fernando C Straube, que acompanham 156 fotos do premiado fotógrafo Marcelo Krause.
