The Ukrainian Bird Ringing Centre

Atlas of Migrations of Birds of Ukraine

One of important results of research associated with bird banding is determining the spatial distribution of birds throughout their year cycle, i.e. finding out where birds of specific population or community of definite species breed, winter and migrate through on seasonal passages. Geographical coordinates of bird locations in a particular time can be determined only by banding. Usually there are coordinates of two points, a result of classic banding using metal rings, namely ringing and finding localities. If tens, hundreds and thousands of recoveries of one species are received, the spatial connections between its breeding and wintering areas are established more precisely. Review of these recoveries in book form is considered under title УAtlas of bird migration (according to banding data)Ф. Some similar publications are titled УBird Ringing AtlasФ. In the world the first similar book was published in Germany in 1931, based on analysis of approximately 9.2 thousand of recoveries: Schuz E., Weigold H. Atlas des Vogelzugs. Nach den Beringungsergebnissen bei palearktischen vogeln. Ц 1931. Ц R. Friedlander & Sohn, Berlin. Till 2015 similar works have been published in 12 countries of Europe.

Atlases of bird migrations (DOC, 123 kb)

At present УAtlas of Migrations of Birds of UkraineФ is being prepared. Data base of analysis is more than 14 thousand of recoveries connected with the territory of the country. We offer here the first 16 articles of the Atlas. Most likely, these articles will be revised, and new articles will be added.
