Abstract:

The aim of the research was to collect information about the feeding behaviours, IUCN status, and diversity of birds in 8 rural and 1 urban locations. We also calculated Shannon's and Simpson's diversity indices to assess bird diversity. Birds are considered reliable indicators of habitat quality, and their feeding habits are crucial aspects of their habitat. The research area covered a total of 12.53 square kilometres. During the study period between 2020-2022, we recorded 143 bird’s species belongs to 18 order & 51 families in which Passeriformes order was dominant in the study area. Based on IUCN Red data list criteria 138 were least concern, 02 were vulnerable, 03 were near threatened & no endangered species were recorded. The research documented 40 migratory birds and 103 resident birds. Our survey suggests that diverse avian species can be found in undisturbed areas away from human presence, such as riverbanks, swamps, lakes, and wetland areas. These habitats offer a wide range of avifaunal species.
