Abstract: The present survey was planned to evaluate the status and abundance of Sarus Crane in Faridpur Tehsil under Bareilly District of Uttar Pradesh. The study method consisted with the collection of data from primary and secondary resources. A total of 32 villages were extensively surveyed for the presence of Sarus Crane whereas 10 villages showed the presence of Sarus crane. The mean population of the Sarus Crane entire was 27.17±0.55 in 10 villages respectively. Mean density of bird in 10 villages was therefore 1.447 birds per km2. The projected number of villages with the presence of Sarus Cranes was 120. The area inhabited by the Sarus cranes was estimated to be 228.8896 km2. Hence, projected total Sarus Crane population in Faridpur tehsil was 220 with the overall mean density of 0.35 Sarus Cranes per km2. The total number of singing male was 12 and the estimated breeding population was 24. The calculated projected breeding population in Faridpur tehsil was 194. The study could be helpful for the research planning and conservation efforts for the Sarus Crane under Bareilly District of Uttar Prades.
