Birds have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, they are found on all continents and use many types of habitats, however as humans change many of these habitats birds have had to either adapt, or suffer. Many species have been able to adapt to human habitation and changing habitats, but many species have also been threatened with extinction.

We would like to thank all the photographers that submitted photos of birds for this week’s theme, your pictures can bring awareness about the beauty and diversity of birds and the threats that they face. Here we present the Top 25 bird photographs of the week.
