Different types of ecosystem and ecological resources related to them signify their preponderance to mankind. Ecosystem maintains the balance between mankind and other organisms by exerting direct or indirect influence on environment. Birds are most crucial and inseparable components of the earth’s ecosystem and play several roles like pollinators, seed dispersers, predators, scavengers etc. and contribute to all the four ecosystem services viz. provisioning, regulation, cultural and supporting services as defined by the United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. The global loss of avian population implies reduction in ecosystem services and hence affecting the human life. The contribution of birds in our economy and maintenance of sustainable ecosystem remains unaccountable due to lack of information on their ecological value and tangible benefits. The complete evaluation of all the services rendered by avian fauna helps us to understand their significance in ecosystem sustainability and crucial role they play in human’s life. The outcomes of scientific study on crucial role of birds to sustain different types of ecosystem will help the public and policy makers to understand the consequences of diminution in bird’s population and spreading awareness about their conservation.
