Abstract

Avifauna surveys were conducted at four sites in Mount Jagoi, Bau in August and November 2011, and February 2012. The main objective of the survey was to catalogue a checklist of under-storey birds. This study also compared the species diversity of avifauna at different locations in that area. Twenty mist-nets were deployed for five days in each site, from 0600 to 1800 hour daily. A total of 296 birds from 52 species representing 21 families were captured. Little Spiderhunter (Arachnothera longirostra) was the most abundant species mist-netted (27.4%) and family Pycnonotidae had the most diverse species caught. Statistical analysis showed that there is significant difference between all the study sites.
