Abstract

We present new information on 26 species of birds encountered in the Plains of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, Mexico, including four species new to the state: snow goose (Chen caerulescens), prairie falcon (Falco mexicanus), red-throated pipit (Anthus cervinus), and bobolink (Dolichonyx orizyvorus). Improving knowledge of status and distribution of species in this area is important to assess conservation risk due to proposed establishment of thousands of wind turbines on the Pacific lowlands of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
