El Vuelvepiedras Rojizo (Arenaria interpres) es una migrante boreal bastante común en playas arenosas y zonas rocosas, en la costa del Perú. Documentamos la presencia de A. interpres en el departamento Loreto, en la Amazonía de Perú, con lo cual se amplía su registro documentado en Perú. Adicionalmente, se proporciona algunos datos sobre su comport...

The breeding biology of the Tiny Hawk (Accipiter superciliosus) is poorly known. Here, we describe two nests found in the rainforest of eastern Peru. The first nest was detected during the incubation period (September 2018) at a height of 14 m, in the fo rk of a 20 m tall unidentified tree (525 m a.s.l.). The second nest was found during the fledgi...

The tropical Andes in South America stand at the top of the world's list of endemism hotspots due to their high species richness per unit area. Thus, our study focuses on the Key Biodiversity Area (KBA) Utcubamba River(PER-84) one of the 96 KBAs, with an extension of 35,534 hectares. This area is located in the northwest Peru, within the hotspot of...

The Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus) is a culturally iconic wildlife symbol for the South American Andes, but is naturally found at very low population densities, and is increasingly threatened. Using the Range Wide Priority Setting methodology, we (a group of 38 Andean Condor experts) updated the Andean Condor historical range (3,230,061 km2), syste...

During several visits from 2010 to 2020 to Cerros de Amotape National Park (CANP), and neighboring areas in the extreme northwest Peru, we recorded a new bird species for Peru: Sporophila funerea. We also recorded seven new species for the west slope of the Peruvian Andes (Leptodon cayanensis, Rostrhamus sociabilis, Geotrygon montana, Crotophaga an...

Este artículo contribuye a la creciente cantidad de literatura sobre la biología reproductiva de las aves de Sudamérica. Provee 823 registros sobre la reproducción de 197 especies al interior de la región Tumbesina de Perú y Ecuador. En los casos posibles, incluimos notas sobre el comportamiento de los adultos, arquitectura del nido, huevos, pichon...
Article
Tropical mountains feature marked species turnover along elevational gradients and across complex topography, resulting in great concentrations of avian biodiversity. In these landscapes, particularly among morphologically conserved and difficult to observe avian groups, species limits still require clarification. One such lineage is Scytalopus tap...

The Ash-colored Cuckoo (Coccycua cinerea) it is considered a hypothetical species for Peru and there are no documented records of its presence within the country. It is considered to be a rare austral migrant to the lowlands of the southwest Peruvian Amazon. It is considered a vagrant in the northern Peruvian Amazon. Here we report four documented...

First discovered in northern San Martín department, Peru, in 1976 by O'Neill and Graves (1977), the Long-whiskered Owlet (Xenoglaux loweryi) has been an enigma to Neotropical ornithologists. Before 2007, it had only been encountered twice more, and only as mist net captures. Finally, in the past decade, the species has been found with regularity in...

Neotropical bird records committees have been growing in numbers, remit and prominence in recent years. This feature-by members of those committees-explains how and why committees were established and encourages birders to submit their observations directly to committees as well as sharing through other means.

We describe a distinctive new species of antbird (Passeriformes: Thamnophilidae) from humid montane forest (1,340-1,670 m above sea level) of the Cordillera Azul, San Martín Region, Peru. Plumage, voice, and molecular evidence distinguish this species from its sister taxon Myrmoderus ferrugineus (Ferruginous-backed Antbird), which is found in lowla...

INTRODUCCIÓN El Perú tiene pocos rubros en los que pueda vanagloriarse de ser campeón del mundo, quizá en surf, ajedrez, matemáticas y algunos otros deportes poco sonados. Pero en cuanto a registrar la mayor diversidad de aves en un país, durante un único día, ahí sí somos campeones en todo el planeta. Prueba de ello es el reciente triunfo en el Gl...

We present a preliminary list of 14 priority areas for the conservation of Andean Condor in Peru. These areas were selected due to the documented presence of six or more individuals in at least two periods since 2005. Between 160 and 273 Andean Condor individuals have been registered here. Of these, nine are areas protected by the Peruvian governme...

Laquipampa was first designated a Reserved Zone, a temporary protected area category used by the Peruvian government until more complete studies permit a final designation, in 1982. The initial designation was based on the presence of the endemic and globally threatened White-winged Guan Penelope albipennis, but few other data on its other avifauna...

The recent species status of the Tumbes Swallow (Tachycineta stolzmanni) emphasized our lack of even basic life history understanding for this species. Found only in the threatened seasonally dry tropical forests of the Tumbesian region, T stolzmanni may be at risk itself. We studied breeding birds in northwestern Peru using nest boxes, which suppo...

The white-winged guan Penelope albipennis (Cracidae) is endemic to the dry forests of northwestern Peru and considered Critically Endangered due to hunting and habitat destruction. Efforts to conserve this species included captive breeding and reintroduction. Before release, birds were screened for avian diseases to ensure the reintroduction of hea...

The Peruvian Plantcutter, Phytotoma raimondii Taczanowski, 1883, is a restricted-range species endemic to coastal northern Peru. Historically its range is given from Tumbes in the extreme northwestern Peru, south to the northern part of Lima Department. Although an increasing amount of information on the Peruvian Plantcutter exists, from historical...
