MIGRANT GARDEN

Unmistakable. A small urban species. It is extremely elegant in flight and always delicately and magically balanced. The adult male has uniform
silver feathers and the female also shines with her lightly golden plumage. There are also some species that are colored because of a chromatic mutation and are frequently found in the neighborhood of e-bay. They always land with their short thin beaks. They easily adapt to any environment, are very friendly and love children. Voice: a stanza increasing in sound: “o,o,o,o,o,o-iooooi”. The baby chicks, after leaving the nest, incessantly shout “ui,ui,ui,uuui,”. Originally found in China especially in the industrial cities of Guangzhou and Nanjing, they began migrating to America and the countries of Europe throughout the year escaping from the pollution. They were extremely popular until 2009 when the “Angry Birds” began to appear. These birds had instantly become famous and billionaires provoking an enormous crisis of jealousy and depression in the birds that hung on the tightropes. This was the onset of a rapid decline to extinction. In the more modern ornithology books such as Fritz Berghental of 2013 we have already found the name of Avis Depressio for the balancing bird.
