Abstract:In order to learn about the bird diversity and the status of wetland waterbirds in the Nanmoqie Wetland National Nature Reserve (Sichuan Province), 10 field surveys were conducted on bird resources using the line-transect and point-counting methods in the reserve from August 2019 to April 2021. Combined with the historical data, a total of 176 bird species from 46 families and 18 orders were recorded, and 9 species were under class Ⅰ national protection and 24 under class Ⅱ. Residents (102 species, 57.95%) and summer visitors (51 species, 28.98%) accounted for the most part of all species, and the avifauna composition was dominated by the Palearctic Realm species. The highest species richness and abundance were found in the meadow habitat. Shrubs and shrub-grassland habitat had the highest diversity index. The highest bird richness was detected in summer, while the lowest was detected in winter. Both species richness and abundance of waterbird were low, with only 28 species recorded, and 20 of them including ruddy shelduck (Tadorna ferruginea), common merganser (Mergellus merganser), common redshank (Tringa totanus) and etc. were observed during the survey. Moreover, little difference of bird species richness was detected among different wetland habitats. This study enriches the basic information of regional birds and provides a scientific basis for the protection and management of bird diversity in the reserve.
