Abstract:The birds at airports threaten the flight safety for their special living place. A detailed record of the species, numbers, flight heights and meeting times of the birds was made in spring. The original data were analyzed by the factor analysis, and the results showed that the meeting time and density of the birds got the highest scores in the first principal component which made the greatest contributions to bird risk, so these two factors were the most important ones to bird risk assessment. The body length and flight height got the highest scores in the second principal component. These two factors were important but not the most important ones. 44 bird species were divided into different groups on the basis of the meeting times and density of the birds through poly-class analysis, and the results showed that 18 species (40.91% of total birds) such as the Eurasian blackbird, Arctic warbler et al. belonged to the lowest risk group, 10 species (22.73% of total birds) such as common tailorbird, fork-tailed swift et al. belonged to the average risk group, 14 species (31.82% of total birds) such as black-shouldered kite, red-rumped swallow et al. belonged to the high risk group, the little egret and long-tailed shrike (4.54% of total birds) belonged to the highest risk group. How to avoid bird strike at the air ports will be carried out much better on the basis of all the results above.
