Threatened species
Many species of NE Brazil are threatened by extinction. Our reserve helps to protect some of them:
Birds of NE Brazil
in Caatinga, Cerrado,
and other habitats
List of birds of northeastern Brazil
seen or heard by Hermann Redies

I followed the taxonomic system of the South American Classification Committee (SACC) of the American Ornithologists' Union (AOU). Version: 12 September 2008, and later. However, for family Tyrannidae, I added subfamilies (Elaeniinae etc.) as in Sick 1997.

Species which I saw or heard in Mãe-da-lua private reserve, Itapajé, state of Ceará, from 2006 to 2012, are labeled Mdl.
