Sipaliwini savanna (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) on the Sipaliwini savanna. The number indicates the number of times an observer made a report that was processed into my database. All birds of one species seen on the same day are counted as one observation. The first observations were made in 1961, apart from a harpy eagle catched there in 1907. There have not yet been many visits and reports of the region, compared to Raleigh Falls or Brownsberg.

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.
