MARTINEZ, Omar et al. Riqueza específica y especies de interés para la conservación de la avifauna del área protegida Serranía del Aguaragüe (Sur de Bolivia). Hornero [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.2, pp.111-128. ISSN 0073-3407.

Bird species richness and species of conservation concern of the Serranía del Aguaragüe protected area (Southern Bolivia) We studied the avifauna of 11 localities of the Serranía del Aguaragüe National Park and Natural Area of Integrated Management, Gran Chaco Province, Tarija Department, Bolivia. A total of 272 species were recorded, 6 of which were threatened (Buteogallus coronatus, Ara militaris, Amazona tucumana, Vultur gryphus y Buteogallus solitarius). This study includes 11 new species records for Tarija Department and 14 that were previously known by a few records. Twenty-nine species were zoogeographical endemisms: 20 for Central South America region and 9 for Central Andes region. The Serranía del Aguaragüe National Park and Natural Area of Integrated Management is an important area with convergent avifaunistic elements belonging to western mountain forests and eastern Chaco, along with several migrant species, especially austral ones.
