In Crimea, the local small variety of nesting birds is difficult to notice, because the following birds fly to the peninsula:
Crimea is located on the migratory routes of birds, so many species visit this place, taking advantage of the diversity of its landscapes for rest and food on the way.
Migrant birds contribute to the eradication of insect pests and are seasonally hunted by locals for game and pleasure.
Breeding birds predominate and make up about 60%. Flies and temporarily stops about 30% and only 10% remain for the winter. Approximately 1/3 of Crimean bird species are rare.

The Crimean mountains are low and not a very large variety of birds lives in them, but there are interesting representatives of the avifauna, for example, pheasants.
The highlands of the peninsula are also inhabited by birds that are used to surviving in conditions of a poor nutritional diet or prey on other birds and small reptiles, such as eagle owls.
The avifauna of mixed floodplain forests along the Crimean rivers is more favorable to birds. Birds use the gifts of the forest, fly to feed on nearby fields, because the forests of Crimea are not as extensive as on the mainland.
The steppe part of the Crimea is inhabited by birds endemic to the steppe Ukraine.
