The Avespampa project began in 2005 as a Guide to the Birds of Argentina Pampas Plain.

Pampas Area has the 30% of the more than 1,000 bird species which live in Argentina, due to its location and environment characteristics.

Almost all of them are common birds and can be easily watched in the rest of the country.

At present, the project tries to cover all the areas of the continental Argentina, including birds more restricted distribution and / or difficult to observe for the common fan (Andean, jungle, Patagonia, etc.).

The website has information and pictures of 808 bird species and 92 subspecies or geographical races with over  6000 pictures. It is also included sound files and videos (not ready but working on it) of more than 566 species.

Surfing this website you will find details, comments and unknown pictures of the species which habits our country, collected “in situ” by the author in different visits to the countryside tours.

Entering to  List of Birds  you will find a taxonomic classification with the details of all species of the site. You can also use the menu at the footer and search by order, family, Science name or common name as well as the English names.

To facilitate identification, we have included an identifier Aves Argentinas authored by Dr. Manuel Nores, renowned ornithologist, with over 35 years experience in ornithological research and explorations in South America.

Also added twenty species showing photos taken by eminent Argentine photographers, such as Ricardo E. Doumecq Milieu, Ramon Moller Jensen, Lito Camps, Ariel Panero, Ignacio Hernández, Norberto Gómez and Federico Villegas.

The texts were extracted from the “Birds of Argentina & Uruguay - a Field Guide” whose authors are Tito Narosky and Darío Yzurieta, and added descriptions of Martin Rodolfo De la Peña and Alvaro Jaramillo.

Drawings were made by Maria Gabriela Arancio.

The systematic classification includes updates published in the “Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Argentina” of Juan Mazar Barnett & Mark Pearman; in "Los Que Se Van" and "Otros que se Van" by Juan Carlos Chebez, recommendations of the SACC (South American Classification Committee) and recent publication an other authors.
