The Chaffinch is a very common breeding bird in Lycabettus
The Serin is also a very common breeder in Lycabettus. Every spring, tens of pairs use the pine trees for nesting, most of them departing every autumn for lowland areas.
The Hoopoe is a summer visitor to Lycabettus, the first birds arriving as early as late February! Several pairs nest in rock crevices, and early in the morning birds can be seen looking for food very close to the city streets that surround the Hill.
