Abstract

A total of 76 species of birds have been identified and recorded at the Ralamandal wildlife sanctuary. These species belonged to 13 orders and 39 families. Further it has been observed that, Egyptian vulture was found to be in the (EN) Endangered category and Alexandrine parakeet was found to be in the (NT) Near Threatened category of IUCN. Out of 76 species, 64 species were found to be resident and 12 species were winter visitors. Order Passeriformes was found to be dominant with 46 species of birds. Interestingly, 9 species of raptors were recorded at the sanctuary, which is sign of balanced forest ecosystem.
