It is known that 370-380 bird species are widespread in different climatic zones of Ukraine, and about 280 species of birds are found in the territory of Central Forest-Steppe and, in particular, the Cherkasy region. A significant part of the species settles in forests, household plots, and summer habitats around the cities. An urgent problem in optimizing the urban ecological environment because of its global deterioration is facing humanity. Some issues of bird ecology of suburban habitats, particularly in the Uman area, were studied earlier in the environmental conditions of Uman city. However, since then, significant ecological and technology-related changes that have significantly affected the populations of the studied species in urban landscapes have occurred, and we tried to fill these gaps.
