Caetetus Ecological Station harbors one of the largest seasonal semideciduous forest remnants in the state of São Paulo. Few investigators have conducted bird surveys in this locality, one of the most important sites regarding Atlantic forest birds from the interior of the state. In order to determine the station's avifauna with recently collected data and to contribute with new records we censused the bird community using the Point Count method from October 2005 to December 2006. We recorded 226 species whereas other authors have recorded another 68, for a total of 293 for the station. Many species were Atlantic forest or Cerrado endemics and some were endangered in the state, justifying the existence of this conservation unit and proving the need of long-term surveys and preservation of seasonal semideciduous forests native fragments.
