The Serra do Caraça Reserves surrounds a monastery located in the southern part of the Espinhaço mountain range, in the state of Minas Gerais.
It possesses an extremely diversified fauna and flora. At higher altitudes, in the campos rupestres, species endemic to the Espinhaço Mountains, such as Hyacinth Visorbearer, Rock Tapaculo, Gray-backed Tachuri and Pale-throated Serra-Finch may be found.
At lower altitudes there is humid forest where we can look for many Atlantic forest bird species, such as Surucua Trogon, White-breasted Tapaculo, Crescent-chested Puffbird, White-bibbed and Serra Antbird, Swallow-tailed Cotinga, Red-ruffed Fruitcrow, Gilt-edged and Hepatic Tanager and the Serra-do-Mar Tyrant-Manakin.
Night excursions often prove to be very productive with great chances of seeing Ocellated Poorwill and Tawny-browed Owl.
