Birds and Birding in India

Checklists of the Birds of India by State

Click on the required state below to view its full species checklist, or view the complete India checklist.

All our checklists are based on actual verified sightings and, rather than being simple lists, give relative abundance, or an assessment of the likelihood of seeing each species year-round. Read more about our eBird-driven checklists.

The birds shown in the visual index are the official state birds for each state (and union territory) of India.[1] If you don’t know what the bird is from the photo, click through to view the full species checklist and find it there!

  1. Neither Dadra and Nagar Haveli, nor Daman and Diu, have designated a species.↩︎
