Resumen

Polylepis pacensis woodlands are endemic to Bolivia, distributed in La Paz (near Illimani, Quime, and Inquisivi) and Cochabamba (Cotacajes) departments. In this study, we evaluated the bird assemblages of four fragments of P. pacensis woodlands located in the foothills of nevado Illimani, La Paz, Bolivia. In these woodlands, we recorded 31 bird species, including two endemic species of Bolivia, Black-hooded Sunbeam (Aglaeactis pamela) and Grey-bellied Flowerpiercer (Diglossa carbonaria), and two species strongly specialized to Polylepis woodlands, Tawny Tit-spinetail (Leptasthenura yanacensis) and Giant Conebill (Conirostrum binghami). Polylepis pacensis woodlands are highly threatened by human activities, such as burning, logging and agriculture; which may be causing of deforestation and degradation of this important habitat for bird species. It is crucial to implement conservation programs involving the active participation of local people.
