Seasonal movements at the northern margin of the distribution of Japanese wagtail, Motacilla grandis



Seasonal movements at the northern margin of the distribution of Japanese wagtail, Motacilla grandis



Bulletin of the Higashi Taisetsu Museum of Natural History ch; 27: 55-61



The author has investigated the movements of Japanese Wagtail in central Hokkaido (the northern part of Tokachi district) since 1976. Japanese Wagtail occurred at the waterside even where they could not breed in fall. They occurred mainly at river (especially braided stream) in winter. The population of Japanese Wagtail did not substantially decrease in winter. Therefore the opinion that most of Japanese Wagtails were summer visitors in Hokkaido was denied. Resident type, summer visitor type and winter visitor type occurred in the braided stream which was a primary habitat, on the other hands resident type did not occur in the secondary habitat. That is to say, although Japanese Wagtails were not migrants, they seasonally moved. It is thought that Japanese Wagtails are able to utilize the riparian habitats widely by moving seasonally.
