According to Hinduism, Amarkantak is a sacred site. It is the source of the Narmada River, and the locals revere it as “Maa Narmada.” Amarkantak’s tropical deciduous forest is the natural habitat of many species; there are ponds, agriculture areas, and grassland that are ideal for bird watching. From 7 February to 12 March 2021, it detected 85 species of birds belonging to 15 orders and 48 families in six different areas: Jamunadhadar, Kapilasangam, Sonmuda, Mai ki bagiya, Main mandir, and Chakrathirth. In this study, the morning and evening hours of each day were chosen for identification and observation in various locations such as dams, farm fields, grasslands, and forest areas. Jamunadhadar has the most diverse avian fauna diversity, with 60 species, followed by Chakratirth, which has 54 species, Sonmuda, which has 39 species, and Main Mandir, which has 11 species. Dams, agriculture fields, tiny ponds, and grasslands in Jamunadhaar provide a better home for several types of birds. The spotted creeper (Salpornis spilotus) has been spotted in Jamunadhader and Sonmuda. It was not found in the previous year’s Achanakmar-Amarkantak Biosphere Reserve survey. Another bird that was not seen in Amarkantak in earlier surveys was the red naped Ibis (Pseudibis papillosa), which was seen in Jamunadhader, Chakratirth, and Kapilasangam in this study.
