Diverse, Indicator, Habitat, Resident, Migrant
Birds often constitute the most diverse and attractive fauna of any region. They have very specific habitat and behavior making them the most suitable indicator of habitat condition in an area. Kota in Rajasthan has a rich population of both resident and migrant avian species. A total of 62 species were sighted during the survey. Out of these 54 were resident species and 8 were migratory birds. Birds sightings were more in areas which had ample water, trees and greenery. Great Indian Bustard (state bird of Rajasthan) and Vulture could not be spotted in this survey. Serious efforts for conservation of these birds are required.
