The summer birds were investigated using line transect census methods from 8 samples of 5 habitats in Gaoping Airport and its near by area during May to August in 2006. There were 51 species belonging to 30 families and 10 orders in summer, in which 27 species (52.9%) were the birds of the Oriental realm, 12 species (23.5% ) were Palaearctic, and 12 species(23.5%) were difficult to define the distribution. Among breeding birds, 27 species (54% ) were the Oriental realm, and 11 species (22% ) were Palaearctic. There were 25 species (49.0%) of summer migrant, in which 25 species (49.0% ) were resident birds. According to the analysis of importance value, the most important birds to bird strike were Hirundo daurica, H. rustica, Lanius schach, Egretta garzetta, Motacilla alba, Streptopelia chinensis, and Columba domestica, etc. According to the habitat distribution coefficient of birds, 31 species were euryoecious. The dominant species (D>10) were Hirundo daurica, Columba domestica, and Lanius schach. The control measures for bird striking have been proposed in this paper based on D value, IV value, ADC value and the current environment status of Gaoping Airport.
