Abstract:From December 2016 to June 2018, bird resources of the Sichuan Meigu Dafengding National Nature Reserve were investigated by point counts and line-transect methods. A total of 268 bird species belonging to 56 families and 17 orders were recorded in the reserve according to the field survey and related literature records. Among the bird species recorded in the reserve, 146 were residents (54.5%), 91 were summer visitors (34.0%), 18 were winter visitors (6.7%) and 13 were passage migrants (4.9%), and the most common of which were breeding birds including 67.5% of Oriental origin species. Additionally, there were 2 class Ⅰ and 16 class Ⅱ nationally key protected birds. One species was listed on CITES Appendix Ⅰ and 12 species were listed on CITES Appendix Ⅱ. One species was classified in the IUCN category EN, 3 VU and 2 NT. Moreover, 14 species were found to be endemic to China. The richness of birds in each habitat type were coniferous forest > broadleaved forest > mixed broadleaf-conifer forest > shrub & shrub grass > alpine meadow > wetlands. The highest similarity of bird communities was between the three forest habitats, while wetlands showed the lowest bird distribution similarity with other habitats. Species richness of birds peaked between 2 600-3 000 m elevations and decreased at lower and higher elevations, showing a mid-elevational peak pattern. This study provides further basic data of birds in the reserve of Liangshan Mountains and is an important case for the study of bird vertical diversity.
