Oluwatimilehin E. Olabamiyo, Akinsola I. Akinpelu

The diversity and the feeding guilds of birds in Lekki Conservation Centre was carried out over a period of six months (May-October) with a view to providing information on the complexity of ecosystem structure and updated information on each type of habitat in the Centre. The sampled area covered both the forest area and grassland region of the study site. The Line Transect method was used. A total of 89 bird species belonging to 34 families were recorded during the study covering an area of about 70 hectares. The species diversity was measured by Shannons diversity index which was based on the number of species for Transect A, Transect B and Forest was 3.242, 3.146 and 2.704 respectively while the species evenness measured based on the number of species for Transect A, Transect B and Forest was 0.3763, 0.347 and 0.4152 respectively The result of the study concluded that birds species in the grassland region were more diverse than the forest area while the birds in the Forest area was evenly distributed than birds in the grassland. The avian feeding guild concluded that insectivores birds were widely distributed in the sampled area.
