Southern South America is home to 1074 bird species, in 3 countries: Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, with more than 100 endemic species in the south cone.

It is a remarkable area considering the characteristics of its species plus 50 vagrant, accidental or hypothetical species that might be found due to the location at the southernmost point plus the great area of ocean and islands. Taking everything into account we have a total of 1124 bird species.

This list includes 69 species off different categories recorded in the country but which are not expected to be found. Includes presumably extinct, vagrant and accidental species (even with confirm records) and still hypothetical species. Their real status will be clarified along time with the contribution of the birders who send the records for the next editions. We have not indicated if their names are in the Official List or not.
