Yes, there are urban birds, and then there are CBD birds, that actually live in the concrete jungle - you rarely see the birds listed below - with the possible exception of the swallows in the high rise zone where there is virtually no greenery. I find it interesting that the
peregrines can tolerate the total lack of greenery, even taking into
account their cliff-based orientation.

There is quite a number of species that call our towns home, just a
few species are Silver Gulls, White-plumed Honeyeater, Australian
Magpie, Magpie Larks, ect but one that is really at home is the
Welcome Swallow I record more in the city areas than else where they nest at the local shops and at my work they sometimes fly inside
hunting insects around the lights.
