Spatial variations of shorebird community in the saltpans of East coast of
Tamil Nadu, Southern India

We studied the spatial variations of bird species and invertebrates in the different saltpans of Kodikkarai regions of east
coast of southern India. We selected five different saltpans and fortnightly quantification was made on birds and
invertebrates. The birds were estimated by total count and the invertebrates were sampled at 20cm depth which used for
foraging by shorebirds.
