Amur Bird Project Report 2011-2013

For the first time we can present a comprehensive report about the ornithological work within the Amur Bird Project at Muraviovka Park!

It contains a commented list of all bird species recorded at the Park, and information about status, phenology and abundance is given as well. The work is based on the observations made between September 2011 and October 2013.

Big thanks to everybody who took part in this!

This year our work will start in July, when we are going to search again for Baer´s Pochard. A report about this species at Muraviovka Park was published recently in BirdingAsia 20.
And from August to October we will continue the standard bird ringing program to survey autumn migration. Stay tuned for weekly updates during that time!

I´m also happy to announce that we received financial support for equipment and local transport during the upcoming season from The Sound Approach, and many members of the Verein Sächsischer Ornithologen e.V. donated for the Amur Bird Project during their annual meeting in April 2014. But we are still searching for funds to cover the everyday expenses at Muraviovka Park. Due to the critical financial situation of the Park we have to come up for everything by ourselves.
