Ardeidae  

Ardeola ralloides (VAG)   : occurs in southwestern and central Europe, northwestern Africa east to the Aral Sea and southeastern Iran. Some populations from the north winter in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, but its main wintering area is in tropical Sub-Saharan Africa ( Martínez-Vilalta & Motis, 1992). The species occurs accidentally in Azores, Cape Verde, Seychelles and Brazil ( Bonan, 2014). The relatively frequent record of the species in Fernando de Noronha/PE since 1986 is considered accidental ( Martínez-Vilalta & Motis, 1992), even though the simultaneous presence of multiple individuals represent an unexpected case of transatlantic movement and may be the first step in establishing a local population ( Silva-e-Silva & Olmos, 2006). Since 2008, there are 30 photographic records for Fernando de Noronha (WikiAves, 2016).

Ardea cinerea (VAG)   : occurs in most of the Palearctic region ( Grantsau, 2010). Records in Fernando de Noronha/ PE show its presence in small numbers for almost six years during the first decade of 2000 ( Silva-e-Silva & Olmos, 2006) and it was also recorded for PA ( Sick, 1997), but it still is considered vagrant in Brazil ( Martínez-Vilalta & Motis, 1992). There is also one photographic record for Fernando de Noronha in September 2013 (WikiAves, 2016).

[ Ardea purpurea   ] (VAG): occurs in the western Palearctic region, in northern Africa and in Cape Verde. It is occasionally recorded for Brazil ( Grantsau, 2010) mainly based on an immature sighted in Fernando de Noronha/ PE ( Nacinovic & Teixeira, 1987), but there is still no documented proof.

Egretta gularis (VAG)   : occurs in Africa and it is a textbook example of a transoceanic vagrant recorded for Fernando de Noronha/PE in two separate occasions in 1996 and 2004 ( Silva-e-Silva & Olmos, 2006) and in the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago in 2006. Both individuals recorded in this last place remained there healthy and feeding for at least eight months from February to September ( Fedrizzi et al., 2007). There is also an additional photographic record for Fernando de Noronha in December 2006 (WikiAves, 2016).

Egretta garzetta (VAG)   : occurs in France and Spain, from Africa to Korea and Japan in Asia and in northern and eastern Australia and New Zealand ( Martínez-Vilalta & Motis, 1992). Its occurrence in Brazil is occasional and was documented for the first time for the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago, BA ( Bencke et al., 2005).
