An ecosystem’s health is greatly influenced by the diversity of its Avifauna, particularly in anthropogenically altered landscapes. The current study was conducted at Shri Krishna University, Chhatarpur, Madhya Pradesh, which constitutes a micro habitat next to National Highway-86. The purpose of this study was to determine the Avian diversity of the Shri Krishna University Campus in Chhatarpur, from February 2022 to July 2022. During the study period, a total of 77 bird species from 35 families were identified. The research revealed seven distinct feeding patterns among the listed species. In order to determine species which predominate in a given area, the Relative Diversity Index of the multiple species was determined. The current result revealed that Muscicapidae family was most diverse family in this campus. The SKU campus bird checklist was created for the first time ever as part of this project, which also documented a representative sample of the University’s Avian variety.

KEY WORDS : Avian diversity, Bird diversity, Feeding habit, Relative Diversity Index (RDi), Residential status.
