Characteristic of breeding bird’s population in the arboreal habitats of the Kiliya Delta of Danube River

Popenko V.M., Diadicheva E.A.

Species composition, habitat choice and numbers (population density) of birds breeding in arboreal habitats of the Danube Delta were studied from 26 June to 3 July 1997 in the framework of a GEF project. Counts were carried out in the Danube Reserve core area (Tabl.1), buffer zone (Tabl.2) and in transition area of anthropogenic landscapes (Tabl.3). Bird population of different habitats and areas with variable grazing pressure are compared. Factors influencing numbers and species diversity of breeding birds are discussed and some recommendations on management of the study area are proposed.
