Sternidae  

Chlidonias leucopterus (VAG)   : breeds in Europe, Siberia, Mongolia and New Zealand and overwinters in Africa, southern Asia and Oceania ( Burger & Gochfeld, 1996). The first record of this species in Brazil and in South America was made in 2008 in the Lagoa do Peixe National Park ( Aldabe et al., 2010). New photographs were also taken in the same region in 2010 (WikiAves, 2016).

Sterna vittata (VAG)   : breeds in the Antarctic Peninsula and overwinters on the east coast of the South America and in southern Africa. There are resident populations on subantarctic islands. In Brazil, it was recorded during austral winter historically for RJ and SC without precise localities ( Sick, 1997) and there are recent records for BA ( Lima et al., 2004c).
