India is one among the Asian countries which is endowed with a unique topography and climate which sustains different kinds of habitats and unique bird species of ecological and economical significance. On the other hand the symbiotic relationship between birds and agriculture is poorly studied. The need for studying the economic importance of Indian birds in relation to agriculture is stressed since ages by several Indian researchers.
