Birds also prefer to live in luxury


A study of birdlife in South African cities has found that birds prefer wealthy areas to poorer ones.

But they will move out if things get too cramped.

The study, conducted by a team of scientists from the universiti­es of Turin in Italy‚ Cape Town (UCT) and Witwatersr­and (Wits), was published this week in the internatio­nal journal of Global Change Biology.

Greater investment in gardens‚ parks and other green spaces in wealthier neighbourh­oods, resulted in more birds. – TimesLive
