Habitat availability in robust ecosystems affects bird populations (Javed and Kaul, 2002) and agricultural landscapes provide habitat to important avifauna (Munoz-Saez et al., 2017).
According to Isenmann and Moali (2000), 406 species of birds are found in Algeria, thus the species recorded at the mountain of Sidi Reghis correspond to 17% of the Algerian avifauna.
While alder plantations may constitute suitable habitat for many insectivorous bird species, they do not constitute a substitute of native forest stands, but rather act as complementary habitat for the regional insectivorous avifauna. Examining foraging strategies in addition to species diversity may depict a more complete and accurate scenario of the actual conservation value of forest plantations across countries and ecosystems, as plantations are likely to modify bird ecological scenario, and its effects can widely vary depending on the tree species planted and how the plantation was established.
Trabajos previos han demostrado que la composicion de la avifauna en el departamento de Cordoba incluye cerca de 504 especies (Ballesteros, Vergara, & Linares, 2015), y representa cerca el 27% de las especies colombianas (Donegan, McMullan, Quevedo, & Salaman, 2013).
The same photograph was subsequently reproduced by del Castillo (2013) when the species was officially added to the Paraguayan avifauna. The bird had been observed at the edge of a paleochannel, in an area of transitional forest between the Dry Chaco and Cerrado ecoregions, with a high density of Copernicia alba palms before being captured in a mist net.
