ABSTRACT
The Indian Peafowl is becoming locally extinct from several parts of its former range due to habitat conversion, changing cropping pattern, poaching and pesticide use. Due to limited detailed study on population indices of Indian Peafowl, there is no exact estimate of population density of surviving population of Indian Peafowl in the country. The aim of the present study was to know the population indices of Indian Peafowl in Ambala, Kurukshetra and Yamuna Nagar districts of Haryana using call count and line transect method. The survey was also conducted to know the various habitat variables which influence the density index of Indian Peafowl. The findings are expected to provide baseline information for developing and adopting management as well as conservation strategies for Indian Peafowl in Haryana state.
