New book on Indian birds

State of India's birds

By Team eBird, February 17, 2020:

Today marks the launch of the State of India’s Birds: the first comprehensive assessment of the distribution range, trends in abundance, and conservation status for most of the bird species that regularly occur in India. The 10 million bird sightings that informed this milestone report came entirely from eBird.

Of the 867 bird species evaluated in the report, 261 species had sufficient information to calculate population trends. Of those, 52% show long-term declines. But it’s not all bad news: Indian Peafowl, the national bird, has doubled in population over the past 25 years! Check out a summary below, and visit for more information.
