Abstract:Aaccording to the collected specimens and field observations,the distribution of six new records of birds in Sichuan Province was confirmed. The results show that most of the newly recorded birds are expanding from south to north, especially the Asian Open-bill Stork(Anastomus oscitans),in recent years has been expanding northward, the expansion of individuals mainly are sub-adults, the expansion rate is about 42Km / year. There are also a few spreads for the east-west radiative diffusion, such as the red storks(Phoenicopterus ruber). Due to changes in the environment and climate, the distribution pattern of birds has undergone great changes. It is necessary to strengthen the monitoring and research of new distributed birds and the impact of newly distributed birds on native species and ecosystems.
