Tijuca National Park - Birding

I am looking to do some birding in Tijuca National Park. Are there birding guides for hire within the park or do I need to hire a someone from outside? Also, any suggestions on where to find a good birding guide?

Thanks everyone!

Andrea,

The majority of our local guides have a good nature approach in their "portfoglio", so you can expect: whoever you get will be able to show and present you the species....

I consider the Tijuca National Park a must when in Rio, but as it is a very dense forest, it is not that easy to experience bird watching there.

A much better spot for that is Lagoa Rodrigo de Freittas and Jardim Botanico, which you could even do by your own.
