IBA Justification

The site was identified as important in 2015 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
White-crested Guan Penelope pileata VU resident 2006 30 individuals A1
Buff-browed Chachalaca Ortalis superciliaris LC resident 2007 30 individuals A1
Belem Curassow Crax pinima CR resident - present A1
Black-winged Trumpeter Psophia obscura CR resident - present A1
