Abstract: The bustard houbara (Chlamydotis undulata undulata) belongs to group of birds largely diversified, this genres is represented by 23 species and 46 sub-species all of them are part of the family of the otitidae. In Algeria they are protected species (the law2006-14 from14/11/2006), on the international level it is ranged to the appendix II of the Washington convention on the international trade of the wild fauna and flora threatened by extinction (C.I.T.E.S). Everywhere, the populations of these species are in decline because of the destruction of their habitat and excessive hunting. Actually we suppose that the Algerian population of this species had been divided into sub-populations and probably they were isolated one from each other. Our work is based about study for the diet of the Houbara. Bustard through a quantitative and qualitative analysis ofthe bird droppingcollectedfrom thesouthwestern regionof Biskra. Highlight the opportunism of the species that adapts to the availabilities of items in their natural environment. The results obtained shown their diet is omnivorous contains items of plant and animal origin; the insects are the most present, this confirm the usefulness agro ecological of the houbara bustard,and we incite to make a program for the reinforcements of the natural populations.
