The mangers, placed by the CIAV Association with the University of Perugia and l’Ati 165m Marmore Falls (coop Actl, Alis, Sistema Museo, Diocesan Centre and Civita) inside the excursion area of the Marmore Falls on 4 October, has a great success. The first important goal on the efficacy about the initiative is “testified” directly by the beneficiaries of the supplies points, I mean all the birds that are in that environmental kind and have appreciate the seeds every day provided by the operators of CEA ( Environmental Education Centres) in the specific places. Many species have been observed, common and uncommon, go in the mangers to feed. Blue tits, Great tits, the common chaffinches and the most un common woodpeckers, the blackbirds and the robin redbreasts that every day queue to eat, sometimes argue with other birds and sometimes fighting to triumph on other species. Who, among the tourists of the Falls, had the patience and the chance to stop near the five areas equipped, has certainly observed these funny and alternative but very important scenes of the “alive nature”. This naturalistic aspect of the area of the Falls was in fact eluded by the more absent – minded. Now, instead of, we can discover other surprises of this precious site: an incredible quantities and varieties of birds, more or less linked indissolubly to this vulnerable ecosystem. The CIAV association, that manages the ornithological and micological exhibition rooms in Palazzo Magalotti of Collestatte Paese included inside the Environmental Education Centres of the municipality of Terni always in collaboration with the University of Perugia and the ATI 165 m Marmore Falls would like to finish the initial project of the birds garden, also encouraged by the results obtained, to continue the work of awareness and environmental education to whom the local schools have already rapturously answered. We hope that in the future we confirm this unique opportunity and that all the subjects involved until now, can collaborate efficiently to the success of this ambitious common program.
