Dynamics of pre-wintering gatherings and forming of wintering of the waterbirds on the Dnieper near Kaniv (Central Ukraine) in 2016. - V.N. Grishchenko, E.D. Yablonovska-Grishchenko. - Avifauna of Ukraine. 7. 2016. - P. 63-68.
We studied timing of forming, species composition and number dynamics of two autumn gatherings. They were located on a fish-farm on the Kaniv reservoir and on the river-bed of Dnieper. The work continued observations in 2013–2015. Pre-wintering gatherings arose in the first ten-day of October and remained up to the beginning of wintering in early December. As in preceding years, majority of birds were Mallards and diving ducks. [Russian].
Key words: migration, wintering, species composition, number dynamics, ducks.
