Abstract: Enumerating the species richness is an essential tool to detect changes in avian community structure for their effective management and conservation of species and their habitat. The study area being in the tropical region with varied habitats occurring, hills, plains and coastal plains and well distributed water columns flourishing with the food resources, hosts many wintering and non-wintering birds. The present study determines the bird diversity in wetland habitat types such as marsh, swamp, shallow waters, open water bodies and mangrove at Srikakulam District (18° 20’ N and 19° 10’N to 83° 25’E and 84° 50’E), Andhra Pradesh, during November, 2009 to 2013. In the present study, 145 bird species belonging to 48 families of 16 orders and their status were recorded. Conservative measures are also suggested for preventing the degradation of the resources as well educating the local people for conserving the species in the region.
