Symbols of nations in shallow ditch
People always have tried to adjust environment to their needs. Look around – how many things you see are not transformed and affected by human activities? We tried make fields, forests, and water courses easy of access and use. Forests became clearances, wetland were dike. In the video you see shallow ditch that is an appropriate habitat for different bird species.
People sing songs about birds, mimic them in dance, and even design of aircraft wings are made after bird wings. Countries in whole world nominate birds are their national bird out of respect for almost 50 years. In the movie we can see a few of them – White Wagtail Motacilla alba – national bird of Latvia, European Robin Erithacus rubecula – “royal bird” of Great Britain, Common Blackbird Turdus merula – symbol of Sweden. European Magpie Pica pica cousin Formosan Blue Magpie has been nominated the national bird of Taiwan, while other Korean Magpie is the symbol of South Korea. Only Common Redstart Phoenicurus phoenicurus for now is without “nationality”.
