The Mata Atlântica is home of 891 bird species, regarding the last comprehensive survey.  Of these are 213 bird species endemic and 233 are categorized as endangered by the IUCN.

At Fazenda Bom Pastor we could count so far 83 bird species up to December 2023.

But a complete species inventory is planed for 2024 as part of the EAI-Project. Our project area is situated within the EBA 075 - the Endemic Bird Area of the Atlantic forest lowlands and the IBA BR106 - the Important Bird & Biodiversity Areas, classified by Birdlife International. EBA's and IBA's are areas with an significant number of endemic bird species, which renders the areas of importance for biodiversity conservation. Most of the species inhabiting Fazenda Bom Pastor could not be photographed. Hence, only a small selection of species follows here.
