Resumen: Se discute la ornitofauna observada en cuatro áreas con diferentes grados de perturbación ambiental en Moa, provincia de Holguín, Cuba. Las cuatro áreas comprenden: zonas altamente degradadas por la contaminación industrial, parches boscosos, zonas reforestadas y zonas montañosas. Se detectaron 42 especies de aves en total, representando 12 órdenes y 20 familias. La mayor diversidad de aves se registró en la zona montañosa (34 especies) y la más baja en la zona industrial altamente degradada (6 especies). Se pide información que facilite el análisis de metales pesados encontrados en algunas aves de la zona.


Abstract: Birds present in areas with different degrees of environmental disturbance in Moa, Cuba- The observed bird fauna in four areas with varying degrees of environmental disturbance near Moa, Holguín province, Cuba, is discussed. The four localities include highly degraded and contaminated industrial areas, remnant forest patches, reforested areas, and mountainous zones. Forty-two species were observed representing 12 orders and 20 families. Highest avian diversity was found in the mountainous area (34 species), whereas the lowest was found in the highly degraded industrial area (6 species). A request is made for information that could help in the analysis of heavy metals found in some birds in the area.
