    Report on range extension of eight lesser known avian species from Durgapur. Ecoregion, West Bengal, India.
    Type
    Report
    Description
    Abstract The present study reports eight avian species from Durgapur (23.48°N, 87.32°E) which has not been previously reported from this ecoregion. During a duration of two years of continuous study 186 different bird species were identified and recorded from the present study location. Durgapur ecoregion comprises of heterogeneous habitat patches which unmistakably supports higher bird diversity. Of the eight newly recorded bird species Mirafra erythroptera was most abundant. Mirafra erythroptera, Prinia sylvatica, Dumetia hyperythra and Zapornia fusca were recorded to appear throughout the year while Larus ichthyaetus and Otus brucei only appeared in the winter and Emberiza melanocephala and Muscicapa ruficauda were recorded as passage migrants (autumn and spring respectively). Again Mirafra erythroptera, Otus brucei and Emberiza melanocephala were recorded from grasslands and Prinia sylvatica, Dumetia hyperythra, Larus ichthyaetus, Muscicapa ruficauda and Zapornia fusca were recorded from wetland habitat types respectively. More extensive studies on avian species will surely enrich our knowledge about their diversity, distribution pattern and range extension from the present study location.

    Avifaunal diversity in Assam University Campus, Silchar, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    We conducted a bird survey in the Assam University campus, Silchar from February 2011 to June 2011. A total of 73 species of birds belonging to 56 genera, 32 families and 13 orders was recorded. Significantly, the highest number of bird species restricted to only one particular habitat (17 species) was recorded in the forest area called ‘eco-forest’ (χ2=18, df=3, P<0.01). The highest similarity of bird species was found between degraded area and secondary growth area, and the lowest was found between eco-forest and degraded area. Species richness and dominance of species were more in the eco-forest area. The diversity of species was more in the secondary growth area. Red-vented Bulbul, Spotted Dove and Red-whiskered Bulbul were the most abundant and frequent bird species found in campus. The avifaunal diversity in the study area shows the importance of the University campus as an ideal bird habitat.
