Development of the state's cities continues at a record setting pace in many parts of the Florida. Like the loss of plant diversity in agricultural areas, urbanization of former natural areas, displaces many plant and wildlife species. Some species can adapt to the change and do quite well. Those that do are found in parks, along roadsides and around home feeders. These opportunists can tolerate the noise of a city and being in close proximity to humans. More sensitive species will leave the developing areas and try to find some new suitable segment of the habitat to occupy.
