National Park called Rome
Seven Hills, Ruins of the Colosseum, Temples of the Renaissance, Romantic Fountains, Street Cafes, a hundred species of spaghetti. To these characteristic signs of the eternal city, which have long become "business cards", It’s time to add one more – "National Park", where 110 species of birds are abolished, 26 mammals, 15 types of reptiles and fish and 6 – amphibians.
Stone clefts on Piazza Klodio chose fox, falcons nest on the top of the Colosseum. Duck-Slap perfectly feel in Styrich Tiber, tritons multiply in the modern line of the ancient river. And along the old appia road, spike, crawl viper. In Rome, there was a unique ecosystem, a real national park. Largely due to the fact that there are no industrial enterprises and many areas of the city are not built.
Even in the historical center of the Italian capital, flying perfectly, jumping and running our smaller brothers running. And what – eating in bulk, predators – minimum, hunting is prohibited. Much calmer than in the forest. Many species easily adapted to new conditions.
For example, sea seagulls who fly to Rome from the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea of some 10 minutes. Accustomed to nest from the water, they confused the city with an island in the ocean, and the tiled roofs were probably accepted for the rocks. Birds that hunt in the wild on carelessly pop-up fish, now dive with swimming foodstuffs. Ornithologists counted about 300 pairs of chaps permanently residing in prestigious quarters along the river bed.
About Hundreds of Password Couvenies willingly demonstrate to indigenous residents and guests of the capital Evolution of this species against the background of the ancient Ruins of the Palatinsky Hill. What to talk about pigeons, sparrows, corons, ducks, as well as herons, keys, owls, wilts and owls. At Villach Borghese and Hell Razdolly Zabami, Frogs, Salamandra and Triton. Unfortunately, representatives of this class of vertebrates often become victims of cars. Gecko, lizards and snakes are worthy of the class of reptiles, and fish – carps, karasi, kefali, acne, and endemic for Italy Fish Peshe-Gatto and Spinarello.
Skvortsov in Rome more than people. These migrate, which are especially much in the area of the Central Termini Station, firmly settled in the crowns of Mediterranean pines – Pinoons. Back in 1970, the starlings, fleeing from the cold, reach it to Italy and moved further to the south – in Africa, where the winter was worried. And in recent decades, they firmly settled on Apennines, and it is in Rome, where even in January the temperature does not fall below zero. And in March-April, they are sent together to native land – to Russia, Finland, Poland. In Rome, Pernaya Strangers feel very rapidly. For them, the evergreen trees of Italy are a fashionable hotels where you can enjoy the winter holidays, having rested from concerns about the removal and education of offspring. On the quality of food winged guests to complain not to come – in warm Italy abundance of bugs, spiders, seeds and other tasty.
Despite the small growth, the multiplying squorter tribe delivers a lot of hassle in the residents of the eternal city. Sometimes you can observe the picture when the Romans, fearing to be attacked by the lives of birds internate, short fuses, closing the head with prickly means, try to find a saving canopy to hide from "Bombarding". The most prudent do not part with umbrellas. Cars suffer from birds. Since there are always problems with parking in Rome, then you try to push the car to the liberated place, which is often located right under seasonal housing of birds. What is the surprise of the owner, who found that he had "Steel Konya" Suddenly replaced the color. To restore it, you will have to wash the car for a long time from a lacquer. But if you abstract from small trouble, you can take a look at the hordes of fast star. The rapid flight of birds of many leads to admiration. This is a giant whistling swarm, which changes every second shape, folding in bizarre figures. It seems that the sky is littered with small, black, miner dots, which are then merged into a single moving body, similar to a huge thunderstorm cloud.
Understanding that the patience of citizens may exhausize, the Italian league of defenders invented a witty way that the pilot birds still remember that they are visiting and should not abuse the patience of the hosts. A scream of danger was recorded on the film, which the starves publish, warning their relatives about the approaching threat. Experts solved with the help of speakers to broadcast this bird signal in order to scare the squorters for a while and give residents to break from noise, gamas and excrement.
The technology was tried in the area of the main nesting of the starlings near Termini Station. Alas. Winged "pests" It turned out so much that they didn’t even hear the danger signals and continued to enjoy carefree "Paradise life". Only closer to March, the Skvorts will begin to leave the shores of the tiber and rush to the north, where they will bring spring on their wings.
