There are no specific areas of birding on madmaheshwar trek, you will find birds throughout the trek as it is forested area all around.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

If you reach Haridwar before 1-30 pm then you can catch shared jeep for Rudrapryag.
Rapti Gangs exp from Moradabad at 8-45 am reached Haridwar at 12. But it is thrice in a week.

From Najibabad to Haridwar is 1hr 40 minutes by bus.

Moradabad is a bad station to get off at to get to Haridwar, unless you want to hire a taxi. Buses are infrequent and it'll take 5-6 hours. Since there's plenty of time, see if you can book Upasana Express or Kumbha Express to Haridwar.

Actually I couldn't get the booking of those trains on that date.But i saw that there are few trains that go through moradabad upto Haridwar including Kumbha /Upasana exp.Thats why I bought the ticket.Because of waiting time I am asking whether to go Haridwar by bus or pick a train as my train status is that it runs on an avg.1 hr late.Thank you for your kind information.

I also saw that the nangaldam express also passes through Saharanpur which is little nearer to Haridwar than Moradabad.Can i get buses for Haridwar frequently than Moradabad or should I wait for the next train towards Haridwar from Moradabad? Finally it means that reaching Rudraprayag on that day would be very much impossible.

Firstly, I would still suggest to book Upasana and/or Kumbha on WL and see what happens.
If you do take KOAA NLDM Exp - if you can get a train from MB to HW, nothing like it. If you don't, you have no option other than a bus (I presume you don't want to take a taxi), which will be slower than a train.

In fact I did check the schedule for Saharanpur earlier. Thing is, it's better connected to Haridwar by bus than Moradabad is, and I would have suggested it if there were no poss to get from MB to HW by train. But you won't make it before 2 pm, if your train is on time. So, tough decision ....
What you can try - book till SRE, and hope the train stops at Laksar or Roorkee a few minutes for traffic reasons . If you can hop off the train at either, it'll be a lot simpler and quicker to get to Haridwar. 1 hour from either place.

You need minimum 5 hours to get from Haridwar to Rudraprayag by public transport.

If the date can be changed to 27th sept (Wednesday) then Sleeper class is available from Patna in Akal takht exp. You can reach Haridwar from Najibabad with in 12 pm.

But if you catch an early morning (4/5 am ) bus from Haridwar/Rishikesh towards Rudrapryag , you can reach Ransi easily.

Saharanpur is better than Moradabad if the train is on right time.

Share jeeps and private buses leave from Natraj Chauk.

GMVN's Bharat Bhumi complex is near Natraj Chauk. A dorm bed will cost Rs. 250. There are also other hotels nearby but I couldn't tell you their tariffs. You could just reach there, look around and then choose.
