The Straw-crowned Bulbul (Pycnonotus zeylanicus) is the only species considered vulnerable, and six species which are, the White-chested Babbler (Trichastoma rostratum), Great Argus Pheasant (Argusianus argus), Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros), Black Hornbill (Anthracoceros malayanus), Chestnut-naped Forktail (Enicurus ruficapillus) and Whitehead's Trogon (Harpactes whiteheadi) are globally near threatened under the IUCN Red-Data Book. The most species rich was Pycnonotidae (Bulbuls) with four species where observed in 3 days. This forest shows good indicator in ecological interaction due to variety of forest bird species found in this area. Therefore, protection and conservation of this forest area is a necessity.
