Abstract:Wind power, as green energy sources, is rapidly developing in recent years. However, the potential impact of wind farm on surrounding environment, especially on bird activity has received extensive attention. To estimate the effect of wind turbines on bird diversity, line transect surveys for birds were conducted in January, March, April and May of 2019 in the Lianzhou Wind Power Plant (Guangdong Province). According to the distance from wind turbines, a total of 32 transect lines were separated into 4 gradients:100-300 m (6 transect lines), 300-500 m (13 transect lines), 500-700 m (8 transect lines), and >700 m (5 transect lines). The results showed that:1) a total of 112 bird species were recorded, and Passeriformes and Timaliidae have the highest species richness (78 and 12 species, respectively); 2) bird species richness, richness of family and genera increased with the increasing of distance from the wind turbines, especially when the distance was > 500 m. Additionally, species-genera ratios showed similar pattern. This study suggests that the impact of wind plants on bird diversity occurred within 500 m away from the wind turbines, and such impacts might be attributed to wind turbine noise, direct or indirect habitat changes etc.
