Migration and overwintering of bean geese anser fabalis and white fronted geese anser albifrons in the former gdr germany



Migration and overwintering of bean geese anser fabalis and white fronted geese anser albifrons in the former gdr germany



Beitraege zur Vogelkunde 37(1-2): 65-74



Migration and overwintering of Bean Geese (Anser fabalis) and White-fronted Geese (Anser albifrons) were studied at several stopover sites in the former German Democratic Republic. Migratory phenology of the geese is described based on weekly counts made from September to April for the period between 1985 and 1988. There are clear regional differences in migration of the birds, with the proportion of White-fronted Geese in goose communities at stopover sites decreasing from north to south. Bean Geese are more likely to overwinter than White-fronted Geese; even in severe winters, some of them remain in the region. It was possible to demonstrate that a decrease in temperature triggers migration of White-fronted Geese.
