Abstract | Full Text

We describe the bird species composition in the Chingaza National Park and its buffer zone, based on a revision of 10 published studies, recent fieldwork between 2008-2017, and the Colombia Bio expedition on 2018. We report 531 species for the Chingaza National Park and its buffer zone, grouped in 339 genera and 57 families. Six species are endemic to Colombia, 14 are near-endemic, 1 is critically endangered, 6 are endangered, 4 are vulnerable, 3 are near-threatened and 37 are migratory. This list includes 149 species more than those comprised in previous information from published datasets and ornithological collections. Additionally, we generated genetic barcodes, based sequences of the mtDNA gene COI, for 74 species, and present the first genetic record from Colombia in Barcode of Life Datasystems (BOLD) for Dysithamnus leucostictus, Chamaeza turdina, Rupicola peruvianus, Atlapetes semirufus, Euphonia mesochrysa and Chlorospingus flavopectus olsoni. This list is a tool to promote the study and conservation of birds in this area of the Colombian Eastern Cordillera.
