Seasonal stresses like extremely low environmental temperature and consequently poor temperature controlling measures (Shikra
et al., 2005; Hossain et al., 2010; Heleili et al., 2011) and other weak managemental practices may contribute to this seasonal difference (Ahmad, 1998; Mukhtar et al., 2012).
One of the species spotted was the Shikra
sparrow hawk, which has been added to Turkey's bird species list.
