Sagarika Phalke, JV John, M Jayashankar, K Avinash

A study was conducted to understand the diversity of avian fauna in a human-dominated rural landscape of Bengaluru. Seventy- nine species belonging to forty five families were recorded in the area of Taralu which lies south of Bangalore in close proximity (~ 1 km) to the protected area of Bannerghatta National Park, Karnataka. Three species were found to be of the status ‘Near Threatened’ according to the IUCN Red List [1]. 68 species were found to be residents of this landscape indicating the potential of Taralu as an important ecotone between the forest ecosystem of Bannerghatta and other ecosystems of the region harboring vast faunal and floral diversity.
