Birds are typical animals, they are known to migrate. Migratory bird species which live with us during the summer are almost all in their wintering areas. Much less known is the fact that even to Slovakia arrive species that stay with us only a few months until the spring is coming. From raptors it is one of these types, for example, the hen harrier, the merlin or the rough-legged buzzard. They find more favorable conditions for overwintering. Birds must during migration face many obstacles, such as collision with overhead power lines. Slovakia will dangerous sections of power lines for birds make greener – with flight diverters.
