This hilly and densely populated area of mosaic agricultural land is the last remaining breeding area of Roller in Croatia. On the hills (Cesargradska gora, Macelj) extensive oak-hornbeam forests are developed. The main threats to birds are changes in traditional farming, agricultural intensification and intensified forest management.
