The survey of Maitri Garden was done to explore the birds of the zoo. It shows that the zoos are a special place where the birds can be conserved for their betterment. There is not a great change in the behavior, breeding season, food habit, etc. of the birds which are kept in the zoo instead there are taken a proper care there. There are 9 families and 12 species of birds kept in the Maitri Garden among which the Rose ringed parrot are included in threatened species. Many of the birds are exotic. All the birds are kept in pairs so that their breeding is not stopped in the zoo.
