One of the IBA commitments is to maintain constant bird species monitoring present in the area and especially those threat category or endemism. So, in 2007 we started The Christmas Count and The Neotropical Waterbird Census at IBA lake Tota, we visit three times a year to carry out these activities, nevertheless we do record of birds at other year times. Lake Tota is an important Andean wetland with many resident birds species and passage place of boreal and southern migratory species, It´s a potential RAMSAR site.
