This study assessed the diversity and abundance of species of birds in the savannah woodlands of Gashaka-Gumti National Park (GGNP) that is Bodel and Mayo-Selbe range using the “Time Species Count (TSC)” method. A total of 35 bird families and 96 species were recorded at both sites. 66 species in 29 bird families at Bodel and 73 species in 31 bird families at Mayo-Selbe were recorded respectively. There was significant difference in species diversity within bird families between the two sites (p<0.05) because of good breeding sites at Mayo-Selbe which include a wide variety of resources, high productivity and moderate levels of predation compare to Bodel. This study was carried out to enhance conservation; however the development of subsistence farming, tree cutting, and firewood collection should be restricted in the savannah woodlands areas.
