Title: Aves e vegetação em um bairro residencial da cidade de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brasil)
Title Alternative: Birds and vegetation in a residential quarter in São Paulo city (São Paulo, Brazil)
Author: Argel-de-Oliveira, Maria Martha
Abstract: From 1978 to 1991, 48 bird species have exploited some kind of resource in a residential quarter reasonably well provided of vegetation. There was a predominante of species with generalist feeding habits (omnivores and non-specialized insectivores), forest edge or secondary growth dwellers, and species that feed and nest in arboreal and shrub layers. Only 23 species are certain or probable residents; the presence of others is due to migration or to displacement of populational excedents coming perhaps from nearby urban parks. Although the vegetation is not exactly profuse, it is enough to be exploited by many forest species. As the city of São Paulo confines with the Atlantic Forest, this kind of urban vegetation may be important to the maintenance not only of resident populations but also of vagrant birds from the surroundings, including some rare or little known species.
