The distribution and numbers of the Collared Doves (Streptopelia decaocto) during the nesting period in Kharkiv City

О. O. Bresgunova, N. S. Litinskiy, Y. V. Litinskaya, O. I. Sinna

Keywords: Collared Dove, absolute censuses, mean breeding density

Absolute censuses of the Collared Doves breeding number were conducted in Kharkiv mainly from April to July 2016. The city area of Kharkiv was divided into 0.25 km² squares. The number of the Collared Doves was counted and singing males were mapped in 40 squares. Then we determined the numbers of nesting birds by extrapolating the collected data for main habitat types as follows: an area of residential blocks of flats, suburb residential area, industrial area, forest zone, park zone and undeveloped urban areas. The mean breeding density of the Collared Dove in Kharkiv constituted 6 pairs / km² in suburbs, 4.6 pairs / km² – in areas of residential blocks of flats, 3 pairs/km² – in industrial areas, 2 pairs/ km² – in park zones, and 0.4 pairs / km² – in undeveloped urban areas. The total numbers of Collared Doves in Kharkiv were estimated as about 850 breeding pairs.
