You are standing in a room on the 3rd floor in a building. You then point to the glass window to refer to the space on the left outside the building as showed in the picture.

And then you say "There are more birds on this side".

Is it okay or natural to say that?

    Yes, but you use 'there are' in your question, and 'there're' in your title. There're is common in speech, at least in certain dialects, but you'll rarely see it written. – Michael Harvey May 24 at 16:17

    Yes, if you had previously been talking about the other side of the building! – Kate Bunting May 24 at 17:32
