Abstract:The avian fauna and distribution of Putuoshan Island was investigated by using line transact method and fixed-point statistics during May 2004 to June 2005. 7 order, 23 family and 60 species of birds on Putuoshan Island were recorded. Among them, 30 species are residents, 10 species are summer visitors, 16 species are winter visitors and 4 species are travelers. There were 4 dominant species, 13 common species and 43 rare species. Milvus lineatus, Accipiter nisus and A. soloensis were state-level protected birds . The avian fauna were composed of 22 Oriental realm species, 24 Palaearctic realm species, and 14 eurytopic species. Among breeding birds, the rate of the Oriental species and Palaearctic species was 2.8:1, which showed that the number of Oriental species was more.There were 27 newly recorded species including Ardea cinerea rectirostris on Putuoshan Island. 19 species were not recorded in this study, including Egretta garzetta, Milvus lineatus, Aythya baeri, Dicrurus macrocercus, Corvus frugilegus, Oriolus chinensis and so on which were recorded 22 years ago. Tourism exploitation and human disturbance may be the reasons for the reduction.
