Madeira Birds

Madeira birds’ first references date from 1455 by Ca’ da Mosto and since then several ornithologists and naturalists have contributed to the knowledge of the avifauna of Madeira archipelago. With this website Catarina Correia-Fagundes & Hugo Romano, a couple of passionate birdwatchers and naturalists who own and run Wind Birds’ tours, aim to continue the ornithological work and to promote Madeira’s wildlife and birdwatching as well as ease the access to the Checklist of the birds of the archipelago of Madeira and keep both local and visitant birdwatchers updated with the sightings of vagrant birds to this region.

This checklist is updated with records published until December 2013. The taxonomic order and classification and the English names (with few exceptions) follow Gill & Donsker 2013

It can be ordered (A to Z) by each column, just click on the proper title.
