Breeding ornithofauna of villages of the Dniester Region

A.A. Tishchenkov

Surveys in Dniester Region’s villages were carried out in 2002. 46 species of 7 orders, namely, Ciconiiformes – 1, Columbiformes – 3; Strigiformes – 2; Apodiformes – 1; Coraciiformes – 1; Piciformes – 2; Passeriformes – 36 species were registered. The total number was about 1757.1 pairs/km2. House Sparrow and Barn Swallow are the dominants. The majority of birds nesting in villages belong to the European and Transpalearctic types of the fauna, to the nemoral and desert-mountains landscape-genetics faunistics complexes, to the dendrophilous and sklerophilous ecological groups, to the entomophagous and phytophagous trophic groups.
