A total of 441 species of birds have been recorded, of which 14 are endemic. The Koshi Barrage is an extremely important resting place for many migratory birds, including winter and tarns-Himalayan migratory species.

During winter, many of the migratory birds can be seen on the Koshi Barrage and on the river channel. Migration usually peaks around mid March. Much wildlife visits these areas during dusk and down.
