Mountains provide habitats for many birds. Mountain ecosystems have adapted to their specific environmental conditions which makes them sensitive to environmental change. Birds that use mountain habitats have adapted to these conditions and are thus also sensitive to environmental change; in many mountain areas habitat change has resulted in the reduction of liveable habitats for many bird species.

We would like to thank all the photographers that submitted photos of birds that use mountain habitats, your pictures can bring awareness to the variety of birds that depend on these habitats. Here we present the Top 25 photographs of mountain birds.
