Wetlands being a complex ecosystem are well-known for their rich bird species by serving as shelter and foraging ground. However, information on the avian species foraging guild of the Hadejia-Nguru Wetland is unknown and diversity is relatively understood. Using point count method, a total of 14 wetland sites were surveyed from October to December, 2015. A total of 99 census points spaced 400 m apart with 100 m radius were used to surveyed birdsfrom 14 wetland sites. A total of 148 bird species belonging to 23 orders and 50 families were recorded. Among these, 94 (64.19%) were resident, 20 (13.51%) intra-African migrants, and 34 (22.30%) Palearctic winters. Results showed that Muzza wetland was the most diverse (H'= 3.13), followed by Barrack (2.94) and Hadejia Barrage (2.83), whereas Kandamau was the least diverse (1.04), followed by Kwasabat (1.11) and Dumbari (1.33). On the other hand, avian assemblages in Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands were composed of more insectivorous 49.32%, granivorous 14.86%, frugivorous 13.53%, carnivorous 13.51%, piscivorous 7.43%, and fewer vegetarians 1.35%. The diverse array of bird species recorded in this study highlights the conservation importance of Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands. Nevertheless, more studies are needed to understand the relationship between birds and habitat structure, competition and predation among the local bird assemblage to guide future conservation. It is recommended that the wetland management increase public awareness on the importance of birds conservation in the wetland.
