As part of an ongoing camera trapping project in the Sabangau Peat-swamp Forest (Central Kalimantan, Indonesia), we present camera-trap data on the avifauna. The camera traps have captured images and videos since 2008, including 224 individual bird photos representing 142 unique events of 25 species, 11 of which are Endangered, Vulnerable, or Near-Threatened, all of which we describe in species accounts. We describe natural history using quantitative data for Ciconia stormi, Spilornis cheela, and Centropus sinensis and include notes on the virtually unknown Caprimulgus concretus. We also discuss important breeding and behavior observations for S. cheela, Lophura pyronota, C. sinensis, Blythipicus rubiginosus, and Trichixos pyrropygus. Expansions for habitat and range are noted for Accipiter trivirgatus and Pitta nympha. We discuss conservation implications, as well as the usefulness of using long-term camera-trap data to monitor birds.
