A full checklist of the 795 species of Birds of Bangladesh

As a country, Bangladesh is quite small. But a total number of 795 species of birds in Bangladesh have been seen in the last 200 years. This is the full checklist of the species of birds of Bangladesh. The checklist is provided here for bird lovers, bird watchers, bird researchers and students.

The area specifications are given for birds, which have been specified by bird experts, six zoo geographic lines have been estimated for birds of the world. This division also accepted for the mammals or reptiles. The Indian subcontinent is in Oriental Region. This Oriental area has two sub-sections: Sinohimalayan and Indomalayan.

Bangladesh is in the middle of these two subdivisions. The Jamuna river of Bangladesh supposed to be the divider of the two regions.

Though Bangladesh is a small country due to the sub-division of this division, Bangladesh is very rich in wildlife animal resources. This country has more than 800 species of birds. The bird species seen in this country are almost equal to Canada. Many studies on birds have been done and will be in the near future in Bangladesh.

A checklist was published in Prankakoli website in 17 September, 2012. I worked hard to type that checklist from my love of birds. The only objective was to save the species from the poachers or killers.  Here again I published another checklist to protect the birds of Bangladesh. I specially giving thanks to my teacher Dr. Ali Reza Khan who had published a checklist in his book Wildlife of Bangladesh-A Cheklist [From Amphibia to Mammalia] with Bengali Names. You can give the link of this list elsewhere but please do not cut or paste it to any other blogs or websites.

This list has been followed by the checklist of Dr. Ali Reza Khan, already mentioned above, I also followed the encyclopedia of animal and plant Vol. 26 published from the Asiatic Society of Bangladesh. There were the name of 650 bird’s species in the encyclopedia.

This portion is dedicated to the bird lovers of Bangladesh so that they can have ready reference on the English and Bangla Name of all birds likely to be present in Bangladesh.

In the Class Aves birds are all two-legged, two-winged feathered creatures, whether flying or flightless. They are endothermic or warm-blooded with four-chambered heart and reproduce through eggs. We do not have running or flightless birds in Bangladesh.

In this full checklist of the birds of Bangladesh, We have presented total 692 species of the birds of Bangladesh and this checklist needs time to time correction and edition. Please click on the 1-2-3 Page Numbers below to read the total 692 species of the Birds of Bangladesh.

To present the total species number, Here we are writing serial number, English or common Name, local Bangla name, Zoological or scientific name and sometimes a little coment accordingly.
