Bill deformities in Sand larks (Calandrella raytal) in Bangladesh

Datta AK Hasan KM      

Abstract

A survey was carried out between March and April 2015 in some charlands of Jamuna river of Bangladesh for avian research. Huge aggregations of migratory birds as well as resident birds were observed here.  During this time frame two unusual Sand Larks (Calandrella raytal) with deformed beak were spotted. Although systemic survey was done during the study period but we opportunistically found those deformed Sand Larks. Exact causes for their bill deformities are unknown but this information would be helpful for further in depth research in the field of ornithology.
