Seasonal dynamics of wintering bird population in Moscow parks

Seasonal dynamics of wintering bird population in Moscow parks

Zoologicheskii Zhurnal ; 85(5): 602-613

The dynamics of quantitative and qualitative composition of hole-nesting bird populations were studied in five Moscow parks in the winter periods of 1994-2001. Special methods that made possible to estimate changes in the occurrence of individuals, dynamic and census density of wintering bird populations were used. The similar dynamics of the mean seasonal density in wintering bird population in the forest parks studied (0.88-0.97, p 0.05) were revealed. A masking influence of the synanthropic group of birds on the counting results of seasonal fluctuations in the total abundance of birds was shown from the example of the bird population in the museum reserve "Kolomenskoe". The period of the highest stability of the bird population (the 2nd-4st weeks) was determined. At the same levels of the dynamic density of individuals, the probability to meet bird flocks during the period of relative winter stability (January 15-February 20) is much higher than that during the period of early spring migrations (February 21-March 20).
