The rich bird life in Pilibhit includes species like Swamp Francolin , Great Hornbill, Bengal Florican , Lesser Florican, Black Francolin, Jungle Bush Quail, Red Junglefowl, Asian Openbill, Adjutant Stork, Ibis, Emerald Dove, Alexandrine Parakeet, Tawny Fish Owl, Minivet, Golden Oriole, Indian Pitta, Chestnut-bellied Nuthatch, Bushchat, Stonechat , Flycatcher and Red Avadavat .
An astounding count of over 25-30 birds of prey include the Common Buzzard, Steppe Eagle, Red-necked Falcon, Pied Harrier, Merlin and Pallas' Fish Eagle to name a few, provide a remarkable character to the avifauna. This inborn profuseness in bird life increases even further during winter with the arrival of horde migrants – some, like osprey and ducks, coming all the way from Europe, Central Asia, Russia and Alaska along with many Himalayan birds from lofty regions who come to take refuge in Pilibhit to alleviation the extreme conditions in the mountains above. These include many great barbet, woodpeckers, wagtail and the flycatchers. Barahi and Haripur zone is a place where you look out for vultures like the White-backed, Long-billed, Red-headed or king Vulture, Egyptian Vulture, Griffon and the Cinerous.
