Abstract

Avifauna of two localities in the south of Amapa, Brazil, with comments on the distribution and taxonomy of some species. There are few ornithological inventories published for the state of Amapa and the majority of them are restricted to the state's eastern portion. In this work we present the avifaunal survey of two localities in the south of Amapa; one of these is strictly forestal (Rio Cajari Extractive Reserve), and the other is in an area encompassing a mosaic of savannas and forests (Vila Nova). The survey comprises two samplings conducted during the rainy season (December 2008 and February 2010) and one in the dry season (July 2010), resulting in 386 species recorded. Included are the first documented records of Nyctibius leucopterus, Hydropsalis maculicaudus and H. torquata in Amapa, the last of which is also the first Brazilian record north of the Amazonas River. Our data also reinforces the necessity of revisionary studies relating to the taxonomy of populations from Amapa for Pyrrhura picta, Threnetes niger and Sclerurus caudacutus. (AU)
