Abstract:The impact of different habitats and seasons on the community structure of birds was investigated by line transect method in Yongzhou,Hunanprovince from March in 2012 to February in 2013. The results showed that there were 121 species which belonged to 9 orders and 33 families. Among of which, there were 26 summer visitors, 59 residents, 20 winter visitors and 16 passing migrants. Additionally, there were 85 breeding birds including 48 Oriental species (56.47%) in the study area. The resident birds were the dominant bird group in terms of bird abundance. The bird community structure of Yongzhou varied in seasons and two peaks of the species number and population abundance were observed in spring and autumn, and the lowest value was observed in winter. The highest Shannon-Wiener index (2.9901) and evenness index (0.7245) were observed in spring. The highest total Shannon-Wiener index was observed in mountain shrub, followed by farmland, woodland, water area and village, and the highest evenness index was also observed in mountain shrub, followed by farmland, water area, woodland and village.
