The northeast area of the Bogotá Savannah (Cundinamarca, Colombia) is a region where biodiversity requires research because of few records in the current literature. We present a list of birds from the northeast area of the Bogotá Savannah. A systematic sample was conducted in the Ecoparque Sabana Nature Reserve (Tocancipá) to record the frequency of occurrence of bird species, while opportunistic observations were made at Parque Jaime Duque Nature Reserve (Tocancipá) and Aguablanca wetland (Sesquilé). A total of 820 h of sampling was done between February 2016 and June 2019. We provide a list with 128 species belonging to 37 families. Of these species, eight are newly recorded from the Bogotá Savannah; one species is considered Endangered and three are Near Threatened according to the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The species richness found in our study supports the importance of protected areas in the northeast area of the Bogotá Savannah. Protected areas here help conserve the biodiversity of birds of the Andean region.
