We report on the first occurrence of Maastrichtian bird material from the Peirópolis locality (Uberaba district), Minas Gerais State (Brazil). The specimens consist of an indeterminate pedal ungual phalanx (CPP 481), a pedal phalanx 1 of left digit II (CPP 470) and an incomplete metatarsal III (CPP 482). The material can be assigned to Aves gen. et sp. indet. (CPP 470 and CPP 481) and to cf. Enantiornithes gen. et sp. indet. (CPP 482). Despite the isolated and incompleteness nature of these specimens, they add to the otherwise poor record of Cretaceous birds from Brazil.
