- The data were collected in the districts situated near the Kremenchug reservoir. The first storks are observed during the 3rd decade of March and the 1st half of April (Table 1). The nests are situated mostly on the buildings and pump houses (Table 2). The broods have from 1 to 5 fledglings (Table 3). They leave the nests at end of July - the beginning of August. In August broods unite in flocs to some tens of birds. Sometimes the flocs are observed in July. These are the non-breeding nomadic storks. In autumn the last birds are observed mainly from the 3rd decade of August to the 1st decade of September (Table 1). The wintering cases of the sound storks near villages are known. 4 birds perished on the electric lines. [Ukrainian].
