Increased urbanization has brought about an abundance of changes in environmental conditions for many bird species inhabiting these areas. As a result of this, they often change their breeding biology and hunting modes. An example of this is vole-eating specialists which cannot find obvious prey in cities and often have to choose hunting substitutes. This book examines a several year-long study on the common kestrel and long-eared owl in a medium-sized city in Central Europe showed distinguished life strategies of these species, especially changes in their hunting habits.
