  • Title
    Avifauna of Surajpur Wetland, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present communication highlights the significant record of avifauna of the Surajpur Wetland, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh and forms the first record of its kind.  The study was conducted during March 2010 to February 2013.  During the study period, a total of 186 bird species belonging to 44 families were recorded.  Of these 59% (n=109) were residents, 27% (n=51) were winter migrants, 13% (n=25) were summer migrants and only one percent (n=1) were passage migrants.  Based on the frequency of sightings, 46% (n=85) bird species were common, 26% (n=49) fairly common, 17% (n=32) uncommon and 11% (n=20) rare.  The mosaic of habitat types within the wetland serves as an ideal refuge for avifauna.  Also the wetland holds potential of being developed into a green area in the Delhi-NCR region; management intervention needs to be concentrated towards this objective.
