An ecological investigation was made on the water birds of 11 main rivers in mountainous area of Guizhou by line transects method from November to December in 2010. The content included composition, distribution, diversity, density and analysis of interspecies associations. The results showed that there were 17 common water bird species in total belonging to 7 orders, 8 families in rivers of Guizhou mountainous area. The diversity of water birds in this area was uneven distributed and significantly lower than in typical habitat like wetland. No significant difference was observed in the interspecies associations. Therefore, study on river bird ecology was not only an important supplement to current bird ecology research, but also had significant application value.
