in Eurasia there is a huge number of birds, you can meet birds in all natural areas of the country. These are water and forest, field and city, birds of the tundra and the Arctic. Quite a lot of birds are rare and endangered species, so they are listed in the Red Book. Unfortunately, there are birders who sell birds at zoo markets. Those people who care about the conservation of nature should not buy birds, because otherwise they will finance this criminal and destructive activity for the fauna.
Birds find a home for themselves in various places: both in the thicket of dense forests and in noisy megacities. Some species have adapted to live close to human settlements, and eventually turned into full-fledged inhabitants of cities. They had to change the rhythms of life and diet, find new places for nesting and new materials for their arrangement. Urban birds make up about 24% of the entire avifauna of Eurasia.
In cities, you can find the following types:
Birds that live in cities make nests in buildings and structures, in the crowns of trees growing in the yards of residential complexes, in squares and parks. In addition to the above species, in various places you can find crows and tits, jays and magpies, black-headed grosbeaks and jackdaws.
Numerous flocks of waterfowl can be found on the banks of rivers and seas, lakes and swamps. The largest representatives are mandarin ducks and stoners, waders and gulls, loons and coots, kingfishers and scourges, storm petrels and puffins, guillemots and cormorants, ochak guillemots and puffin rhinos. These species feed on marine, river small animals and fish.
Huge bird colonies are often found on the rocky shores of some islands and on the shores of the seas. They are inhabited by a variety of species that get along well with each other. Mostly gulls, cormorants and guillemots. The territory of the bird markets is quite safe and protected from predators, and in case of danger, the birds give alarm sounds. During a mass gathering, birds make nests, lay and incubate eggs, and then raise their offspring.
Birds are inextricably linked with plants such as trees, since in the branches they find protection and a home for themselves, therefore they live in forests. Species diversity of avifauna depends on the forest, whether it is coniferous, mixed or broadleaf. The following types of birds live in the forests:
This is not a complete list of all the inhabitants of the forest.
birds of the wild
Among field and meadow birds there are the following representatives:
These birds not only fly, but jump and run fast, jump and fuss, chase and hunt for someone. They make special sounds, protect and assert their territory, and some of them sing great.
Birds of the tundra and the Arctic have adapted to cold climate conditions. In addition, there is no variety of vegetation here, only small shrubs, some types of grasses, lichens and mosses. In the tundra are found:
Birds of the Arctic
In the Arctic zone there are:
Thus, a huge number of birds live in Eurasia. Certain climatic zones are characterized by specific species that have adapted to life in a particular nature. They forage for themselves and build nests in the conditions to which they are already accustomed. In general, it is worth noting that in Eurasia there is a very rich bird world.
