CUPUL-MAGANA, Fabio Germán. Systematic list of the birds from Boca Negra estuary, Mexico, registered in april 2004. Ecol. apl. [online]. 2004, vol.3, n.1-2, pp.185-187. ISSN 1726-2216.

The systematic list of birds observed at Boca Negra estuary, Jalisco, Mexico, is presented. The area was visited from April 3 to 9, 2004. Thirty five species, belonging to nine orders and 19 families were observed. Of these, 19 were water birds and 16 were land birds. The estuary is the most important place in this region that supports bird reproductive activity. For this reason it should be protected considering urban development derived pressures.
