The Avespampa project began in 2005 as a bird guide to the Pampa Plains of Argentina.

The Pampean Zone, due to its location and environmental characteristics possesses 30% of the more than 1000 species
of birds that inhabit the Argentine Republic. Almost all of them are common and easy to see in the rest of the country.

At present, the project tries to cover all the environments of continental Argentina, including birds of more restricted distribution and/or difficult to observe for the amateur observer (Andean, jungle, Patagonian, etc.).

The site has information and images of 809 bird species and 92 subspecies or geographic breeds with more than 7000 photographs. Also included are sound and video files (in formation) of more than
574 species.

As you browse through these pages you will find details, comments and unpublished photos of the species that inhabit our country, compiled on field trips and taken "in situ" by the author.

Entering
  List of Birds  you will find the detail of all the species contained in the page ordered
taxonomically. You can also use the drop-down menus at the bottom of this page and search by Order,
Family, Common Name or Scientific Name, in addition to the common names in English.

To facilitate identification, we have included an Identifier of Argentinean Birds whose author is Dr. Manuel Nores, a renowned ornithologist, with more than 35 years of experience in ornithological research and explorations in South America.

There are also some twenty species that show pictures taken by Argentine photographers, such as Ricardo E. Doumecq Milieu, Ramón Moller Jensen, Lito Camps, and Ignacio Hernández.

The texts were extracted from the Guide for the Identification of Birds of Argentina and Uruguay, by Tito Narosky
and Darío Yzurieta, enriched with descriptions of Martín Rodolfo De La Peña, Bernabé Lopez Lanus and Álvaro Jaramillo.

The drawings have been made by María Gabriela Arancio.

Systematic classification includes updates published in "Annotated List of Argentinean Birds".
by Juan Mazar Barnett & Mark Pearman; in Juan Carlos Chebez's "Los Que Se Van" and "Otros que se van"; SACC (South American Classification Committee) recommendations; and recent publications by other authors.
