The digha is located at the border of WestBengal and Orissa state. It has both fresh and saline waterbodies rich in aquaticvegetation and several kinds of birds in the harbours in all the seasons. Grasslandareas, rice fields, herbs, shrubs and trees located in and around the water bodiesprovide food and shelter for these birds. Total number of 86 bird species belongingto 10 orders and 35 families were recorded during the 2-year long study period.Passeriformes is the dominant order of birds. But the future of this avian faunais in danger due to unchecked growth of tourism related hotel industry and urbanisationof the city.
