plantage Peperpot (hotspot) Dutch text English text Vogels in Suriname/Birds in Suriname




The table gives all the birds that I could find reported to be observed (seen, heard, caught) in the 'Plantage Peperpot', just across the river from Paramaribo in Suriname. Peperpot is an old coffee plantation, now with a superb nature track. The entrance is 6 km from the bridge along the main road (Oost-West verbinding). The photo of the Tiger-heron was made there by Dominiek Plouvier.

All birds of one species seen on the same day are counted as one observation. The list of reports starts in January 1946 with an observation of the Arrowhead Piculet by judge Francois Haverschmidt, a bird only known from Suriname.

All of the names in the table are linked to pages on this website that describe the bird, and sometimes have one or more photos, sounds or videos of it.
The table was created by J.H. Ribot, with the help of many birders.
