Considering the Shannon-Wiener Index, birds in the urban area of Yala were low species diversity and abundance, as well as each survey month, was not significantly different. Considering the similarity of bird species, these found that the resemblance between the two seasons was less. And, the similarities during the rainy season were higher than in the summer.

As a result, the number and type of birds in the city will reduce.
