Registramos un total de especies en 18 bosques de niebla localizados entre y m s. We recorded species in 18 cloud forests located between and m a. We present a qualitative assessment of relative abundance and habitat preferences for each species.
Besides this, the out- standing new bird records we found contradict the view of the Cordillera Central as a relatively well explored area in Colombia. Sixteen species of conservation concern have healthy populations in these cloud forests; for instance, we report all the 16 localities known for the Chestnut-capped Piha Lipaugus weberi whose range is entirely confined to our study region.
