This Lanius senator was looking for food in an olive groove in Tafraoui near Oran. The species is in decline because of intense agriculture and thus habitat and food loss, and herbicide and pesticide use and thus more loss of food.
This male Sylvia melanocephala had made his home in the shrubs in the forest of Canastel just east of Oran. As you can see, the species is insectivorous.
Motacilla alba can be found in many places on this planet and it appears to do OK as a species, but it is thought that climate change is going to affect its migration. This individual was foraging on the bank of the river Danube in Slovakia.
This Circus aeruginosus was flying over the reeds of Otmoor, an RSPB reserve. The species is facing threats like shooting and in Otmoor in particular habitat loss because some nitwits want to build another road in the area.

When you visit Barcelona, you shouldn’t miss out on a walk in the surrounding hills. You’re quite likely to see a Regulus ignicapilla or at least to hear its high-pitched song.
Chloris chloris is an amazing singer, and this C. c. voousi in a woodland near Oran, Algeria, was no exception. This is also the reason why some nitwits put them into cages.
Corvus corax is an amazing bird. I saw this one in the Lion Mountains near Oran, but the species is fairly widespread in the Northern Hemisphere. Major threats are habitat loss and stupid people who think culling these intelligent corvids would actually be good for the planet.
