Khandwa is one of the districts of state Madhyapradesh which is situated at the southern part of state Madhyapradesh The East Kalibhit forest is one of the largest forest range of dist. Khandwa which is situated nearly 75 kilometres in the eastern part of dist. Khandwa The present investigation was carried out to document the avifauna of this forest This habitat attracted nearly 102 bird species which are local and migratory belonging to 35 families and 14 different orders viz. Ciconiformes, Anseriformes, Gruiformes Pelecanformes, Charadriformes, Coraciformes, Passeriformes and Suliformies Highest population of parakeets and starlings were recorded in all seasons.
