 From November 2012 to March 2013, the terrestrial bird diversity was investigated using line transects and point counts methods in the banks of four regions of Poyang Lake. A total of 69 species belonging to 29 families, 7 orders were recorded. Of the 69 species, black-shouldered kite (Elanus caeruleus), northern harrier (Circus cyaneus), Chinese goshawk (Accipiter soloensis), common buzzard (Buteo buteo) and lesser kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) are listed in the second category of the nationally protected wildlife species. Residents and winter migrants are the most abundant species, which account for 55.07% and 31.89% of total species, respectively. In term of avifauna, Palaearctic realm species, accounting for 44.93%, are the most common species, followed by Oriental realm species (30.43%). The number of species in Duchang Migratory-bird Nature Reserve is the highest among the 4 regions, and the diversity and evenness indices in Nanjishan Wetland National Nature Reserve are the highest. Poyang Lake National Nature Reserve has the lowest diversity and evenness indices but the highest dominant coefficient value.
