We recorded the Banded Ground-cuckoo (Neomorphus radiolosus), White-throated Quail-Dove (Geotrygon frenata) and Chestnut Wood-Quail (Odontophorus hyperythrus) in the Pacific Slope of the Western Andes of Colombia. Records of N. radiolosus extend its geographic distribution 130 km north of its known range. The species had probably not been recorded yet because of its rarity and the absence of studies. Records of G. frenata and O. hyperythrus extend their lower altitudinal limit into 430 m and 1140 m, respectively. Camera trapping appears as promising tool for recording data of the distribution of bird species.
