Abstract

The region comprising Serra do Cachimbo in southern Pará on the border with Mato Grosso is one of Brazil's most interesting regions from a biological standpoint. This complex landscape is an area of transition from the Amazonian Rainforest to the Cerrado of the Brazilian Central Plateau. Mosaics of vegetation can be found, which include dense rainforest savannas (Cerrado) and white sand campinas. Between August 14 and September 3, 2003, and between March 15 and 25, 2004, 310 bird species were registered in the Serra do Cachimbo at Campo de Provas Brigadeiro Veloso. When added to the records obtained by previous researchers, a total of 381 species have now been recorded for this area, including some of the most important in terms of biogeography and conservation, such as: Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus, Chordeiles pusillus, Melanopareia torquata, Herpsilochmus aff. sellowi, Elaenia ruficeps, Xenopipo atronitens, Cyanocorax cristatellus and Cyanocorax chrysops.
