Abstract

Wetlands are the major feeding habitats for water birds. The water birds were estimated weekly by using total count method during 06.00 am to 06.00 pm. Totally seven species of diving birds were observed from Junuary-2011 to December- 2012. The overall diving bird density was recorded maximum during the monsoon period of Year I and Year II i.e. 261.33±41.345/ha and 428.72±49.388/ha respectively
