Twenty-three families of order Passeriformes
were reported during study of avifauna at Mangla dam, which may be due to better ecological conditions and amazing flora (Khan 2015).
The highest number of birds were recorded of order Passeriformes
Gracula religiosa palawanensis is of the class Aves, subclass Neognathae, order Passeriformes

Among birds, the order Passeriformes
has a great importance due to its diversity, which corresponds to about 56% of total species in Brazil (PIACENTINI et al., 2015).
A total of seven vertebrate species was determined, from which five belonged to the order Rodentia and two to the order Passeriformes
. The most abundant species were Akodon spp., Microryzomys spp.
Shrikes of the genus Lanius belong to the order Passeriformes
, mainly sit-and-wait predators, often perching at the top of high grasses, bushes, telephone pole or trees while looking for moving prey (Tryjanowski & Reino, 2004).

Abstract: The order Passeriformes

was the most representative, with 39 species (54%), highlighting the families Tyrannidae (n = 13) and Thraupidae (n = 5).
Families Chloropseidae, Irenidae, Laniidai, Pityriasididae, 2004, for example, toys with the rationalist impulse to name and classify the world in order to understand its otherwise abstract beings.
