The present investigation deals with the population and avian diversity of Safari Park and Karachi University campus area during the period from March, 2009 to December, 2009. A total of (N=176579)1 individuals were recorded from the study areas (Safari park, Karachi and Karachi University) during the current study. Out of these (n1=119986)2 were recorded in University of Karachi campus while (n2=56593)3 were observed from Safari Park. Maximum density of birds was recorded soon after the monsoon season (September and October) favoring the availability of food resources for birds. During research period, over all 44 species of birds were recorded belonging to 29 families. Out of these 26 species of birds were found common in both study areas.
