Two nests and a territorial pair were found in Bolgrad and Tarutine districts in 2003. These are the first breeding records in the region. Nests were built in Robinia pseudacacia in forest belts. Both nests were one-year-old. It is supposed that an expansion has started from Rumania or Moldova. [Russian].
