We provide an annotated checklist of the birds (Aves) of the Karen Mogensen Reserve, Nicoya Peninsula, northwestern Costa Rica, and the ecological characterization of the avian community, focusing on the phenological, ecological, biogeographic, and conservational aspects of the listed species. The taxonomic sequence and the scientific and common names of the species follow the AOU Checklist (American Ornithologists’ Union) through the 2016 supplement (Chesser et al. 2016) and the IOC World Bird List (v. 7.3) by Gill and Donsker (2017), with some modifications according to del Hoyo and Collar (2017) and del Hoyo et al. (2017). The official checklists for Costa Rica considered for comparisons are those provided by Garrigues et al. (2015) and Lepage (2017). The information on the status of each species is derived from the IUCN database (last access: October 2017; IUCN 2017); other information on conservation aspects derives from Species+ database (UNEP 2017) accessed on 20 February 2017 and from the Red list provided by the Ornithological Association of Costa Rica (AOCR 2005). Phenological and ecological categorizations follow Garrigues and Dean (2014) and Garrigues et al. (2015). Habitat types are classified following Miller et al. (2015). Height level classification follows Levey and Stiles (1994) with some modifications. Forest dependency categories follow Stiles (1985) and Sandoval and Barrantes (2009) with some modifications.
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 208 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
