The forests in the Caucasus mountains are being subject to logging so they’ve lost over 50% of their forests. The birds habitat is obviously being threatened and efforts are being made to conserve the forests but no one is sure how that will play out.
“Raptors” or Birds of Prey are prevalent in this area. These birds hunt and feed off other animals which in return, helps out our ecosystem so an effort is being made to conserve these birds.
When it comes to the Lezgin people and their view on birds, I don’t think its very significant. I haven’t come across anything in my research about birds and what the Lezgin peoples beliefs about them are.
