Abstract

Ninety-four species of birds belonging to 38 families were recorded in the three year study at the Kuvempu University Campus, Shimoga District, Karnataka. Most of the families were represented by less than five species except for Corvidae (14 species). There were 84 resident and 10 migratory birds. Fifteen species of waterfowl were recorded from the wetlands (ponds and puddles) of the campus. Among the birds recorded in this study, about 45 per cent are insectivores and other dominating types include piscivores, carnivores and frugivores (12%, 11% and 11% respectively)
