New occurrences and noteworthy records on distribution of birds in Santa Catarina, southern Brazil

By André Barcellos and Iury Almeida Accordi


Most ornithological fieldworks in the state of Santa Catarina concentrate on the eastern half of state, while the middle-west lacks information. Between March 2000 and May 2002 a bird inventory was made in the influence areas of the hydroelectric power plants of Machadinho and Barra Grande, along the right banks of the Uruguai and Pelotas rivers, on Santa Catarina State territory. We carried out ad libitum surveys, point count sampling, and capture with mist nets. We present seventy-two noteworthy records for Santa Catarina, including three new occurrences for the state (Cypseloides senex, Polioptila dumicola e Procacicus solitarius), three species whose available information was only in general bibliography (Amazona pretrei, Ramphastos toco e Capsiempis flaveola), four whose records are the first in the last 40 years (Megascops sanctaecatarinae, Macropsalis forcipata Phyllomyias virescens e Corytops delalandi), and 63 species first cited for the eastern section of the Uruguai river valley
