BIRDS OF THE CITY

Due to the rapid urbanization of the world, many species of animals have been forced to adapt to life in the city.

Cats, dogs, hedgehogs, rats, birds - not a complete list of our younger brothers who settled in the neighborhood.

Depending on the location of the city has developed its own so-called "animal community."

Today we will focus on birds.

It is worth noting that many citizens naively believe that only in Moscow live pigeons, sparrows and crows.

In fact, the list includes about 80 species, 13 of which are directly nest right in the high-rise buildings.

Below is a list of some of them.
