Some previous study shows that urbanization caused the loss of habitat for wildlife especially avifauna (Parsons, 2000; Fernandez-Juricic & Jokimaki, 2001; Chace & Walsh, 2004). The process of urbanization removes, fragments and isolates naturalvegetation, replacing it with roads and buildings and it introduces exotic plants, predators and competitors to the native wildlife. The result is typically a landscape vastly differentfrom the original, with the original vegetation often surviving only in small pockets scattered throughout the city (Chace & Walsh, 2004; Fernandez-Juricic & Jokimaki, 2001). However, the green areas left in the middle of urban areas play important role as biodiversity hotspot. It is provide the needs for kinds of animal, especially bird. Wildlife conservation in urban habitat is increasingly important due to current urbanization trends(Fernandez-Juricic & Jokimaki, 2001). Urban parks are important biodiversity hotspot in cities.
