A total of 27 species belonging to 23 genera under 19 families and eight orders were recorded in Magway University Campus. Out of the total species, two species were aquatic birds comprising under two genera, two families and two orders whereas 25 terrestrial bird species belong to 21 genera 17 families and six orders were recorded.
