The mangrove nature trails of Bang Kaew, Klong Kone and Yisan in Samut Songkhram province, Thailand are near the Inner Gulf of Thailand that are places of foraging for many migratory birds every year. The objectives of this research were to study species diversity, feeding behavior,
abundance, group of migratory birds and threaten status in the research area. The data was carried out by field survey of species diversity and abundance of birds which foraged in 3 boat touring routes along the mangrove nature trail in Amphawa District and Muang District, Samut Songkhram
Province, Thailand from August 2014–July 2015. The data were analyzed to find out abundance of birds. The results found that 5 orders, 11 families and 34 bird species were found in 3 boat touring routes. 5 orders, 9 families and 31 bird species were found in route 1 (the mangrove nature
trail of Bang Kaew Sub-district). 4 orders, 7 families and 24 bird species were found in route 2 (the mangrove nature trail of Klong Kone Sub-district). 5 orders, 8 families and 14 bird species were found in route 3 (the mangrove nature trail of Yisan Sub-district). According to feeding behavior,
there were 10 piscivorous birds, 21 aquatic, benthic invertebrate feeding birds, 2 insectivorous birds and 1 carnivorous bird. According to bird abundance, 13 bird species were in level 3 of bird abundance. It was 38.24% of all bird species. According to group of migratory birds, there were
21 shore birds, 5 terrestrial birds, 4 sea birds, 2 predator birds and 2 wandering birds. According to Global Threaten Status, Eastern Black-tailed, Bar-tailed Godwit, Eurasian Curlew, Curlew Sandpiper, Grey-tailed Tattle, Black-headed Ibis and Red-necked Stint were near-threatened (NT) and
Great Knot was endangered (EN). So the communities should give their hands to conserve natural resources along the mangrove nature trail and biodiversity continuously, because the birds are indicators of natural balance and plenty of food in local ecosystem.
