  • Title
    Composition and conservation status of avian species at Hastinapur Wildlife Sanctuary, Uttar Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    This study on the status and distribution of birds at Hastinapur Wildlife Sanctuary was conducted during the summer of 2010. During the course of the study 117 species of birds including 15 new species were recorded. River Ganga and Boodhi Ganga were found to be preferred by the birds with a species occupancy of 29.79% and 28.51% respectively. However, Khola provided refuge to the wild fauna of the Sanctuary but as results indicated, due to a high pressure of agriculture and other human disturbances, it is avoided by birds.
