A study conducted on urban wildlife found some interesting survival traits. It was seen that the bird species that are highly adaptable have a higher chance of survival in the cities when compared to specialists. City birds were found to be smaller, and were seen to feed on a wider variety of foods. It was also observed that urban birds produce smaller clutches than their rural counterparts. which have been associated with higher survival rates and increased growth. Read on to know more about the study.
