Description: We present the results of a five-month survey of the birds of Paragominas, Pará, a municipality in eastern Brazilian Amazonia that lies within the Belém center of endemism. We recorded 440 species, sampling habitats across a gradient of disturbance, ranging from ?undisturbed? primary forest, through logged and burnt forest, patches of varyingly aged secondary forest, cattle pastures and intensive mechanized agriculture. Given the potential for species miss-identifications in avian inventories, we paid special attention to obtaining voucher documentation (photographs and sound recordings) and here provide a unique collection of publically-accessible digital vouchers for 418 species recorded (95% of the total). Many of the species reported here are poorlyknown or represent notable range-extensions, and we present data on their status and distribution, both within the municipality and elsewhere in the Belém center of endemism. Notable amongst these include the first records for Pará and Amazonia of Spotted Piculet (Picumnus pygmaeus), trans-Tocantins range-extensions for Large-headed Flatbill (Ramphotrigon megacephalum) and Yellowshouldered Grosbeak (Parkerthraustes humeralis) and multiple observations of the threatened paraensis subspecies of Cinnamonthroated Woodcreeper (Dendrexetastes rufigula).
