PULIDO CAPURRO, Víctor Manuel  and  BERMUDEZ DIAZ, Ludisleydis. Seasonal patterns of the resident and migratory bird species of the Villa Swamps, Lima, Peru. Arnaldoa [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.3, pp.1107-1128. ISSN 1815-8242.

In the Villa Swamps, Lima, Peru, 211 species of birds have been registered and are included in 145 genera, 50 families and 21 orders. Regarding the seasonality, 97 species are residents and 114 are from other latitudes, which are divided into three groups: migratory, occasional and introduced. The migratory species (82 species) differ in two groups: those that carry out horizontal migrations, that come from the Nearctic Region (51 species) and the Austral Region (13 species), and the vertical migratory ones that make altitudinal migrations and come from the Peruvian Andes (18 species); and the occasional ones (31 species), which have been registered very rarely and which, although not migratory, have been reported in the Villa Swamps. The migration of birds from the Nearctic Region has a pattern of seasonal variation defined from September to March. And the records of the migrations of the species coming from the Austral Region and the Andean Highlands Region show that the seasonality patterns of them cover the period between May and August.
