Chova piquirroja(Pyrrhocorax Pyrrhocorax)-Choia - Chova rojo - Bet latxinga Gorria- - chova piquirroja

Chova Piquirroja

(Pyrrhocorax Pyrrhocorax)

Habitante de los tajos fluviales, de las escarpadas paredes altimontanas, de los roquedos serranos, de los acantilados costeros y, en general, de los más abruptos y ásperos parajes, la chova piquirroja es un ave acróbata y bastante sociable, que se alimenta —a diferencia de otros córvidos— fundamentalmente de invertebrados. Antaño frecuente en muchas zonas de nuestro territorio, la intensificación agrícola, el uso de plaguicidas y la pérdida de lugares de nidificación han hecho disminuir sensiblemente sus poblaciones
