Bird Survey at Medical College, Kottayam

  • Bird Survey at Medical College, Kottayam

    The bird survey conducted by Junior Naturalists of the Tropical Institute of Ecological Science (TIES) on May 23rd at Government Medical College Kottayam has identified 27 species. Common and Jungle Myna, Rufous Treepie, Black Drongo and White-cheeked Barbet were the most common birds identified in the campus. Despite having a large land area and high canopy cover, the bird diversity was low at the campus. The reasons for this low bird diversity are unknown. The experts inferred that it could be due to a high proportion of exotic tree species like Acacia (Acacia Auriculiformis) in the campus. The survey was conducted by junior naturalists, TIES expert team and MBBS students of Medical College.
