JACOME-NEGRETE, Iván Vinicio et al. Riqueza y abundancia de las aves urbanas de nueve áreas verdes de la ciudad de Sangolquí (Ecuador): Estudio preliminar. Siembra [online]. 2019, vol.6, n.1, pp.1-14. ISSN 2477-8850.

This study was done with the purpose of documenting the richness and abundance of wild birds in nine green areas of Sangolquí. Birdlife was recorded by counting points from 06.30 am to 09.30 am, on days without rain from November 11, 2016, until February 18, 2017, through visual and audio detection. Each of the nine sectors was sampled through seven consecutive counting points. The recorded birdlife included a wealth of 29 species with a total of 1.010 birds. The Eared Dove Zenaida auriculata was the most abundant with 292 birds, while the less abundant species, with only one record, were the Swainson's Thrush Catharus ustulatus, the Crimson-mantled Woodpecker Colaptes rivolii, the Black Vulture Coragyps atratus, the Rusty Flowerpiercer Diglossa sittoides and the Harris´s Hawk Parabuteo unicinctus. The Rock Pigeon, the Rufous collared Sparrow, the Great Thrush, and the Eared Dove are considered synanthropic species for Sangolquí. Finally, it is suggested to restore the shrub cover of green areas to favor the conservation of local birds.
