About Fernando “Pocho” Cabral

National Tour Guide MP G384
Certified Birding Guide at Iguazú National Park

Fernando “Pocho” Cabral was born and raised in the province of Misiones, Argentina, enjoying the birds that surrounded him from an early age.

During his tourism studies, he met birders who introduced him to the world of birdwatching, a passion he has embraced ever since. He began to attend birding workshops, assisted on official bird surveys, organized birding forums and after some ten years of field training and experience as a tour guide, he melded profession with passion and started bird guiding.

Qualified as a Bird Guide by the Iguazú National Park and with a National Tour Guide degree completed, Pocho decided to settle in Puerto Iguazú City in 2010, surrounded by the Atlantic Forest and Iguazú Falls, to do what he loves most: Birding, in the place that he knows best: Iguazú.

During 2020 and 2021, he has taken the opportunity to participate in advanced courses for bird guides taught by leaders in the sector, collaborated with researchers in field ornithology and regularly contributed to citizen science projects by sharing his sightings through different web platforms. Pocho has kept his knowledge and skills fresh and looks forward with delight to sharing them with his guests.
