The Ukrainian Bird Ringing Centre

Dear friends!

You are at site of the Ukrainian Bird Ringing Centre. As a rule, our site is visited by people interested in birds, in particular bird seasonal passages and the most popular method in migration study, namely banding. Bird banding includes wide number of methods, of them the classical marking of bird with metal rings is main. In addition, there are metal colour rings, different bands such as collars and wing markers, as well as study of bird migration by means of satellite transmitters and geolocators.

People fairly frequently come across migration study finding bird rings, catching or observing birds with rings and other bands. It is important that researchers are informed about these records. Bird banding is effective only owing to wide circle of naturalists and other people. It is noted, that for receiving only one recovery tens, hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of birds must be banded, depending on species. The highest percentages of recoveries are from game birds and ones living next to people.

The Centre is also informed about findings of domesticate pigeon ringed by pigeon lovers. We have no information concerning these birds. Please, visit the special Internet web-sites to obtaine this information, for example Internet site Found/lost pigeons Ц address http://vgs.ucoz.ua/gb/


If you found bands or read ring number on bird by means of field-glass or photo, you should:

Ц write all information on ring or other band (note colour of band if it is coloured);

Ц identify species of bird if possible, or note its belonging to any bird groups, namely ducks, gees, birds of prey and others;

Ц write record in detail (found ring, shot bird, dead bird, bird remains, photographed bird or other);

Ц write date of recording;

Ц note record locality (region, administrative district, nearest inhabited locality or geographical coordinates if possible);

Ц send or pass bird recording information by telephone to the Ukrainian Bird Ringing Centre.
