      I coordinate Finnish common bird monitoring schemes and lead my research group the Helsinki Lab of Ornithology in the Finnish Museum of Natural History. I wrote my first bird observations in year I started my biology studies in and finished my MSc thesis about population dynamics and diet of the Great Cormorant in   The new EBBA2 publication aims to provide not just up-to date distribution maps of all European breeding bird species, but also to accompany each species with a unique illustration from one of the prominent bird illustrators or young talented artists across Europe. Until now, we have managed to get 44 illustrators on-board of our project [ ].

      Iceland is the breeding home of perhaps 60 percent of the world's Atlantic puffins. The birds often select precipitous, rocky cliff tops to build their nests, which they line with feathers or grass. A buoyant, large-headed duck that abruptly vanishes and resurfaces as it feeds, the tiny Bufflehead spends winters bobbing in bays, estuaries, reservoirs, and lakes. Males are striking black-and white from a distance. A closer look at the head shows glossy green and purple setting off the striking white patch. Females are a subdued gray-brown with a neat white patch on the .

      The big, black-necked Canada Goose with its signature white chinstrap mark is a familiar and widespread bird of fields and parks. Thousands of “honkers” migrate north and south each year, filling the sky with long V-formations. But as lawns have proliferated, more and more of these grassland-adapted birds are staying put in urban and suburban areas year-round, where . Population trend: Increasing. Distribution trend: Expanding. Breeding pairs: 80,–, Finnish red list category: LC.

The fauna of Europe is all the animals living in Europe and its surrounding seas and islands. Since there is no natural biogeographic boundary in the east and south between Europe and Asia, the term "fauna of Europe" is somewhat elusive.

Europe is the western part of the Palearctic realm (which in turn is part of the Holarctic).Lying within the temperate region, (north of the. The rook (Corvus frugilegus) is a member of the crow family in the passerine order of birds.

It is found in the Palearctic, its range extending from Scandinavia and western Europe to eastern is a large, gregarious, black-feathered bird, distinguished from similar species by the whitish featherless area on the nest collectively in the tops of tall trees, often close.

Numbers recorded by WeBS have seen a sharp fall of around 50% since the peak in /06 when the maximum count exceededbirds. However, interpreting numbers of Golden Plover based on WeBS Counts needs to be done with caution as many birds are found on agricultural land, away from traditional wetlands where WeBS Counts are carried out.

Breeding on Novaya Zemlya, wintering in the Netherlands, population about ,; A new fourth population, derived from the Novaya Zemlya population, has become established since breeding on the islands and coasts of the Baltic Sea (Estonia, Finland, Denmark, and Sweden), and wintering in the Netherlands.

Its population numbers about 8, Productivity – the number of chicks produced per nest – has declined over time, though there is significant variation between breeding seasons, and by just a single chick was being produced, on average, from every four nests – this figure was closer to.

The breeding distribution change map, showing changes over the course of the three breeding-season atlases, confirms that recent increases in the east are just the final phase of a recovery that was clearly under way at the time of the publication of the New Atlas of Breeding Birds.

Greater flamingos live and feed in groups called flocks or colonies. They find safety in numbers, which helps to protect individual birds from predators while their heads are down in the mud.

to my knowledge, only three books were written specifically on the limitation of bird numbers, two by David Lack (, ), and then my own book towards the end of the century (), although chapters on bird populations appeared increasingly in more general books and in symposium volumes (eg Perrins et al.
