Abstract:Based on 5 field surveys from 2010-2017, and review of previous studies, we summarize the occurrence of 336 bird species on the eastern slope of Mt. Gongga, including 204 residents (60.7%), 89 summer visitors (26.5%), 18 winter visitors (5.4%), and 25 passage migrants (7.5%). There are 205 species (61.0%) of Oriental origin, and 105 species (31.3%) of Palearctic origin; 26 species (7.7%) are widespread. Two hundred and forty-five species (72.9%) belong to the order Passeriformes, and 293 species (87.2%) breed on Mt. Gongga. There are 3 Class-1 and 29 Class-2 nationally protected birds, and 53 birds from eastern Mt. Gongga are endemic to Hengduan-Himalaya region. Three species are listed on CITES Appendix Ⅰ and 25 species are listed on CITES Appendix Ⅱ. One species is classified under the IUCN category EN and 2 species under category VU. Our study shows that species from the Oriental origin on average have a lower elevational distribution than Palearctic origin species, indicating that differential adaptation to high elevational environments between Oriental and Palearctic species may be due to different biogeographical histories. Of the 53 endemic species, 51 are of Oriental origin have higher elevational lower limits, midpoints and upper limits than non-endemic species, suggesting that endemics are better adapted to highland environments, which may be associated with their endemism. Species richness of birds peaks between 1 800-2 800 m elevation in mixed coniferous and deciduous broadleaf forest as well as in mixed coniferous broad leaved forests. Species richness decreases at lower and higher elevations, showing an overall hump-shaped richness pattern. Bird communities and vegetation structure change markedly across the elevational gradient of Mt. Gongga.
