The Cast

The systematic classification below is the version published by the South American Classification Committee (SACC) of the AOS (American Ornithological Society). Its objective is to create a standard classification for the bird species of South America. The list is under constant revision. Changes are forwarded and proposals are evaluated to be passed or rejected by the members of the Committee. The Committee is composed of ornithologists from different countries of America. For more information see SACC South American Classification Committee.

The SACC list contains the scientific name in latin and the common name only in English. Spanish speaking countries lack a standardized system to name birds, which hinders the compilation of a sole classification with Spanish names for all the countries. So, for Spanish names we follow the "Birds Filed Guide" by Tito Narosky and Dario Yzurieta.

Ð - Indicates that the species presents a noticeable or marked difference in colour between the male and female (sexual dimorphism). Species like raptors with size dimorphism have been omitted. The male is always in the photo. If there is no male photo, it is clarified between brackets whether it is a female or a juvenile.

P - Indicates that the species presents two different forms of adult, independently of sex (polymorphism). Individuals are called morphs.
