About this book

Language: English

Two hundred and eighty four species of birds were recorded from Andaman and Nicobar Islands, belonging 56 families under 17 orders. Of these, 155 species were residents, 58 were local migrants, 64 were trans-continental migrants, 6 were vagrant and one species was a straggler. Of the 142 endemic bird species of the Indian subcontinent, 28 are found on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Though the Andaman and Nicobar Islands form only 0.25 per cent of the landmass of India, they support 12 per cent of the endemic avifauna. Nineteen sites have been identified as lBAs on the basis of the presence of birds that are globally threatened, near-threatened and endemic species.

In this coffee table book, the authors describe about 130 bird species and subspecies representing all major group from this archipelago.
