Abstract:The bird resources in the drainage area of Yarlung Zangbo River and its two branches are general surveyed from Tibet, China since October 2006. A total of 125 species belonging to 37 families of 15 orders are found and recorded, accounting for about 9.5% of Chinese bird species. Among these birds, there are 78 species of Palaearctic realm (P), accounting for 62.4%, 22 species of the Oriental realm (O) and 20 species of widely distributed species (E). In addition, 84 species were regarded as resident birds (R), accounting for 67.2% and there are 29 species of winter migrants (W), 12 species of summer migrants (S). We also found many protective bird resources in Yarlung Zangbo River and its two branches. 6 species are embodied by International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) List, 19 species are embodied by Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), 13 species are embodied by China Red Data Book of Endangered Animals(RDB), and there are 20 species which can be found in Key Wildlife under First-Grade State Protection (PROT).
