extinction forests rainforests facing


Orioles and figbirds are located throughout the far northwest Africa and the sub-Saharan, temperate Eurasia (except its central deserts), south and east to India, Southeast Asia, and Indonesian archipelagos as far as New Guinea, and north and east Australia.

Orioles and figbirds are found in medium to tall woodlands and forests, including rainforests. They prefer to live in the upper dense foliage and crowns of broadleaf trees within forests and woodlands, generally in temperate (mild) regions but also in rainforests in the topics.

These birds eat fruits and insects.

There is very little significance between orioles and figbirds and people.

One species of orioles and figbirds are listed as Endangered, facing a very high risk of extinction; two species as Vulnerable, facing a high risk of extinction; and three species as Near Threatened, in danger of becoming threatened with extinction.
