Abstract

Croatia ornithofauna makes about 400 species of birds and nesting birds is considered about 226 species. Both these figures are high in European terms, and indicate a very rich ornithofauna. Croatia is one of the richest, most varied in terms of the protection of birds, most European countries, especially if you take into account its relatively small area. Almost all small and medium-sized European countries have a lower number of nesting birds. When comparing the number Features birds Croatianof state nesting European endangered species, to obtain the actual value of the Croatian bird. In Croatia nest for 78 European endangered species, which is more than in all small and medium-sized countries together (with the exception of Albania) and more than in most major European countries. By the number of nesting European endangered species, Croatia ranks 14th place in Europe. Leading far larger countries, such as Russia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine and France. For Croatian ornithofauna general it can be very vulnerable. Some species are already extinct, while others multiply numbers in Croatia decreased. A high proportion of threatened species is partly due to the fact that Croatia is a small country, but for the most part this is the result of most endangered habitats and major or minor anthropogenic pressures in almost all habitats in Croatia.
