          Abstract

          The Estação Ecológica de Taiamã (EET) is one of the Ramsar sites in the Pantanal wetlands of Brazil. We present an annotated list of bird species recorded between 2015 and 2018, along with a compilation of existing data for this area. In our sampling, 207 species were recorded, with 76% documented. We have the first record of Chlidonias niger (Linnaeus, 1758) for the Pantanal and Central region of Brazil. Another 30 species are new records for EET, such as the migrant Hirundo rustica Linnaeus, 1758. The general list comprises 24 orders, 60 families, and 278 species, of which 160 were assigned to the primary list and 118 to the secondary list. This study will aid in the conservation of biodiversity in the Pantanal. The EET and its buffer zone are important for maintaining biodiversity and expanding its boundaries may further promote the conservation of birds in Brazilian wetlands.
