List of birds of Trinidad and Tobago

468 species of bird have been recorded on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The islands are within a few miles of Venezuela, and the species are therefore typical of tropical South America. However, the variety is relatively impoverished compared to the mainland, as would be expected with small islands.

The resident breeding birds are augmented in the northern winter by migrants from North America.

Species occur on both islands except where indicated. Tobago has only about half the number of bird species of Trinidad, but 22 birds have occurred only on the smaller island, including 12 breeding species.
