Podiceps taczanowskii is found in open freshwater lakes and ponds with submerged vegetation; Cinclodes palliatus has very specific habitat requirements such as mineral-rich bogs, rocky outcrops and slopes below glaciers; and Laterallus tuerosi inhabits Juncus zone fringing marshes.
In the western portion the endemic rusty-flanked crake (Laterallus levraudi) and the northern helmeted curassow (Pauxi pauxi), common to other ecoregions, are vulnerable and endangered respectively.
These birds include the Junin grebe (Podiceps taczanowskii), Junin rail (Laterallus tuerosi), black-breated-hillstar (Oreotrochilus melanogaster), dark-winged miner (Geositta saxicolina), white-bellied cinclodes (Cinclodes palliatus), and Junin canastero (Asthenes virgata).
