Abstract: Bird diversity and its community structure were important indicators for the long-term monitoring of biodiversity in ecosystems. The typical forest vegetation types were well preserved in Dinghushan National Nature Reserve, including monsoon evergreen broad-leaved forest, mixed coniferous broad-leaved forest and coniferous forest. The monsoon evergreen broad-leaved forest has been conservation history of more than 400 years. The dataset was systematized sorting and statistics on the long-term monitoring of bird communities from 2015 to 2017 in three typical forest vegetation types of Dinghushan Nature Reserve, that is, monsoon evergreen broad-leaved forest, mixed coniferous broad-leaved forest and coniferous forest. Field surveys include bird species, number, time, distance, ground height, habitat type, activity substrate and behavior. The diversity index, evenness index, dominance index and similarity coefficient of bird community were analyzed. A total of 88 species from 9 orders, 35 families were recorded in the dataset. The dataset provides important data support for further strengthening bird community studies and study of inter-species interaction between multiple groups of plants and animals and the protection and management of forest ecosystem in this region.
