Abstract:We surveyed the breeding bird diversity in Bayinbuluke National Nature Reserve in May and June, 2014~2016. The Bayinbuluke national nature reserve (BNNR) is famous for its key role to the breeding water birds such as Cygnus cygnus, Grus grus, and Anser indicus. Meanwhile BNNR is the first nature reserve for protecting the Cygnus cygnus in China. From 2014 to 2016, we surveyed the BNNR twice a year, and totally recorded 61 species of birds belonged to 11 genera, 24 families, and 47 orders. Among them, the Ciconia nigra was the category I national protected animals. Seven species including Cygnus cygnus, Grus grus, Anthropoides virgo, Falco subbuteo, Aquila nipalensis, Milvus migrans, and Gyps himalayensis were of category II of national protected animals. Water birds such as Cygnus cygnus, Tadorna ferruginea, and Tringa totanus, and grassland birds such as Eremophila alpestris, Oenanthe oenanthe, and Carduelis flavirostris were dominant species in BNNR.
