Surveys for the Endangered Bengal Florican Houbaropsis bengalensis were carried out in three

Most sightings were of males in flight, and in aerial and ground displays, whereas only three
females were recorded during the survey. Altogether, 21–30 birds were recorded from the three
protected areas, and a total population of 32–60 individuals was estimated.
