Abstract: In the course of seven visits totalizing 36 days paid between 1972 and 1975 on Tetiaroa Atoll, the avifauna has been checked: 10 breeding, 6 migrant and 3 introduced species. A special interest has been devoted to the sea birds; two species breed there in great numbers: Sula sula (5000 pairs) and Anous stolidus (30 000 pairs). For all the species notes on statuts, numbers and ecology are presented.
