Zusammenfassung Pando, the northernmost department of Bolivia, is mostly covered in Amazonian forest but has only recently started to be surveyed avifaunally. Here, we describe findings made during six expeditions in 2018–22, including two species new for Bolivia (Bonaparte's Parakeet Pyrrhura lucianii and Acre Tody-Tyrant Hemitriccus cohnhafti), four species new for Pando (Black-capped Tinamou Crypturellus atricapillus, Least Grebe Tachybaptus dominicanus, Broad-winged Hawk Buteo platypterus, Scarlet Tanager Piranga olivacea), a subspecies new for Bolivia (White-bellied Parrot Pionopsitta leucogaster xanthurus), a subspecies new for Pando (Crested Becard Pachyramphus validus validus) and the first departmental record of a doradito (Pseudocolopteryx sp.). Additionally, we document extensions to the known distributions of several other taxa, several of which are evidently benefitting from deforestation.
