Bird species richness in fragmented forest, oil palm plantation and the edge between fragmented forest and oil palm plantation were analyzed for Bukit Durang from August 2014 until April 2015. Nine line transects were set up in fragmented forest and oil palm plantation. Total of 21 mist nets (3 m x 12 m x 36 mm mesh) were used with total 540 nets days in nine transects and each sampling distributed between oil palm, forest and edge. Total 159 individuals successful mist-netted with 10 recaptured individuals with 39 species belong to 18 families. Shannon's index in forest (H'=2.676) showed higher species richness compared to the edge and oil palm plantation. There were no significant difference between forest and oil palm plantation shown by diversity t-test, but there were significant differences when compared with edge. Conservation effort should be taken to enhance species richness in oil palm plantation and forest in future planning.
