Amur Bird Project at Muraviovka Park
The aim of the Amur Bird Project is to study the avifauna along the middle stream of the Amur River
– a species-rich and undersurveyed area in Far East Russia. Since 2011 we collect data on distribu-
tion, ecology and threats of endangered and less-known species and want to establish a long-term
monitoring for both breeding birds and migrants. Another important part of the Amur Bird Project
is environmental education, following the philosophy that nature protection can only be successful
with the acceptance and involvement of the local people. Our voluntary work is based at Muravi-
ovka Park, which was established in 1994 as the rst non-governmentally managed territory for
sustainable land use and environmental education in Russia. It is situated in the southern part of
the Zeya-Bureya Plain, 50 kilometers south-east of the city of Blagoveshchensk in the Amur Region
(49°55´08,27´´N, 127°40´19,93´´E).

Spring migration
For the second time we monitored the spring migration at Muraviovka Park. Our mist-nets were
placed at the same spots as in 2013, and we continued the work in a standardized way. 3340 Birds
out of 91 species were trapped and ringed from April to June 2015. An Eurasian Collared Dove
Streptopelia decaocto was ringed for the very rst time at Muraviovka Park on the 18th of May,
and the adult Siberian Bush Warbler Bradypterus davidi, which was trapped 31st of May,
was the rst spring record of this secretive species. New for the spring season were also Japa-
nese Sparrowhawk Accipiter gularis, Short-eared Owl Asio ammeus, Grey Nightjar
Caprimulgus jotaka, Pale Thrush Turdus pallidus and Common Crossbill Loxia curvi-
rostra. One of our research goals was to investigate the occurrence of protandrous migration, and
how protandry is connected with wing length or age. The results are going to be published soon.
Autumn migration
Since 2011 we continuously monitored autumn migration with our large-scale ringing scheme. The
aim is to collect data on population trends of migratory songbirds. Year by year, our data set grows
and we gain more statistical power to prove our observations. In 2015, we ringed 3555 individuals of
99 species, and we were able to re-trap 841 individuals which have been ringed before. In compari-
son to previous years, numbers were very low, which was especially true for buntings. Several spe-
cies were trapped for the very rst time – like Pechora Pipit Anthus gustavi, Collared Sand
Martin Riparia riparia, Red-rumped Swallow Cecropis daurica, Eurasian Three-toed

Woodpecker Picoides tridactylus and Northern Hawk Owl Surnia ulula. The autumn
team was also very happy about the Amur Bird Project´s second Japanese Waxwing Bomby-
cilla japonica as well as the second and third Grey-capped Pygmy Woodpecker Yungipicus
canicapillus - a species that was recorded in the region for the rst time in 2010. One of the Olive-
backed Pipits Anthus hodgsoni that have been ringed during autumn migration was re-sighted
some days later on the 16th of October at Ansan, South Korea – our third long-distance recovery!
The fourth one was a Red-anked Bluetail Tarsiger cyanurus, which was re-trapped 1600km
west of Muraviovka Park at the Baikal Bird Ringing Station.

Crane Counts
Muraviovka Park is famous for its importance for endangered crane species. 2015 was a very good
year for cranes, we recorded the highest numbers of White-naped Cranes Grus vipio and Hoo-
ded Cranes Grus monacha at the autumn roosting sites inside Muraviovka Park since 2009. We
were also happy about good numbers of Eurasian Cranes Grus grus, but even more about the
critically endangered Siberian Cranes Grus leucogeranus. Several ocks were observed during
late September and the rst days of October, the largest consisted of 30 adults and 3 juveniles – a
record for the autumn migration at the Park.

Breeding birds
The rst basic survey on the abundance of all breeding bird species at Muraviovka Park was conduc-
ted in 2013. Now we started a standardized monitoring using the point-stop count method. 75 points
were visited three times between the end of April and the beginning of July. A total of 2053 “territo-
ries” of 73 species were mapped – with Ring-necked Pheasant Phasanius colchicus, Japane-
se Quail Coturnix japonica and Black-browed Reed Warbler Acrocephalus bistrigiceps
as the most commonly recorded ones. Some species were found breeding at the Park for the rst
time since our surveys – like Long-tailed Tit Aegithalos caudatus and Eurasian Jay Garru-
lus glandarius. Good news also from the Red-crowned Cranes Grus japonensis: up to four
pairs were present during breeding season, and at least one successfully raised two chicks. One of the
adults of this breeding pair was ringed at Khinganski State Nature Reserve back in 1993!
Sadly, a re hit the Park on the 11th of May and destroyed several broods of cranes, ducks and
Oriental Storks Ciconia boyciana. Luckily we managed to save the buildings and huge parts
of the wetlands thanks to the eort of the Park’s sta and friends, local re brigades and our team
members. Studying the impact of res on the wetland ecosystem at Muraviovka Park is one of our
research targets in 2016.

Waterbirds
One of the 2015´s targets was to nd the critically endangered Baer´s Pochard Aythya baeri,
which was a breeding bird at Muraviovka Park in the 1980´s, and might have bred in the area in
2013. So we searched at more than 80 lakes in and around the protected area, where we recorded
all breeding waterbirds as well as habitat parameters (e.g. vegetation) and potential human impacts
(e.g. hunting). Sadly, we did not found our target species, but we collected a nice data set about
the impact of environmental factors and human activities on waterbirds in the region. The highest
numbers of waterbirds were found inside the Park, including rare species like Falcated Teal Anas
falcata and Band-bellied Crake Porzana paykulli.

Yellow-breasted Bunting
The Yellow-breasted Bunting Emberiza aureola was one of the most common species along
the East Asian yway, but is now listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List. The reasons for its de-
cline are poorly understood. Since it is still a rather common breeding bird at Muraviovka Park, we
decided to start surveying survival, habitat use and ecology of this beautiful species – to get a better
understanding which factors could have a negative impact on the local population. For this purpose
we mapped all territories and trapped birds with mist-nets to mark them with individual color ring
combinations. Nine adults were ringed, and they were recognized several times afterwards in their
territories without trapping (and disturbing) them again. The continuation and intensication of this
work is going to be the main target for 2016.
Bird tracking
Knowledge about the migration routes is crucial for the protection of migratory species, but the
available information is still very limited regarding the East Asian yway. In 2015 we started to use
light-level geolocators to study the full migration cycle of Siberian Rubythroats Luscinia calli-
ope for the rst time. Thanks to the support of the CanMove project of Lund University we were able
to equip 12 adult males with loggers. Now we have to hope that many of them come back in spring
2016, when we will retrieve the loggers to analyze the collected data.

Random Observations
Besides our project-based work, we made many exciting observations. A Gyr Falcon Falco rusti-
colus was observed on the 2nd of April – our rst spring record. 18 Whooper Swans Cygnus
cygnus roosted in the wetlands in front of the headquarters for several days in early May, a rare
species in the Amur region. During the same time up to 15 individuals of the threatened Lesser
White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus were found in the North of the protected area, and a
huge ock of 300 Baikal Teals Anas formosa gave stunning views. A migrating Steppe Ea-
gle Aquila nipalensis on the 8th of May was the rst for the Park. We were also happy about
a Brown Hawk Owl Ninox scutulata, which we found in a small pine forest the next day. At
Peschanoie Lake in the north of Muraviovka Park I spotted a Black-necked Grebe Podiceps
nigricollis on the 19th of May – the rst record for the area. A migrating Eurasian Curlew Nu-
menius arquata, seen together with Far Eastern Curlews Numenius madagascariensis
on the 20th of May near Argusicha River, was the second record for the Amur region. Furthermore,
we found the projects rst Great White Egret Egretta alba as well as the rst Black-necked
Stilt Himantopus himantopus at Peschanoie Lake south of the Park on the 7th of June. At the
same spot Little Terns Sterna albifrons were found breeding for the rst time. The next “rst”
for the Park was the Eastern Black-tailed Godwit Limosa melanuroides, when ve of them
were seen near Muraviovka village 18th of August. The Black-crowned Night Heron Nyctico-
rax nycticorax was another rst record– two birds were seen at Kapustikha Lake on the 3rd of
September. The Black Stork Ciconia nigra seen 27th of August was at least the very rst for the
project. Another interesting bird was the hybrid Hooded x Eurasian Crane Grus monacha x
G. grus, which ew to the roosting site 22nd of September.

Environmental education
Numerous groups and school classes from all over the region visited Muraviovka Park and our pro-
ject during the last year, several hundred children watched us ringing birds and learned about bird
migration and nature conservation.
From 8th to 12th of June 32 children from the Amur region took part in our Bird Ecology Summer
Camp. It was organized with Muraviovka Park´s Svetlana Yakovenko and Russian teachers already
for the second time. The kids learned a lot about bird ecology, migration, identication and nature
conservation. All of them were again highly motivated, getting up very early every morning to see
what kind of birds were trapped at our ringing station. Juliana Nefjodowa, Sergej Litvinenko and
Elli Mack helped us a lot with translating to Russian, English and German all day long. On the last
morning the summer school ended with a “bird race”, when the children had to identify as much
bird species as possible within one hour around Muraviovka Park´s headquarter. Together with
one of the Amur Bird Project team the three groups recognized 39 species - a good sign, that the
participants learned a lot about the threatened
diversity in the Amur region. For most of them
this week was also the rst contact with foreig-
ners, and so we had the feeling that these days
contributed also to intercultural understanding
and tolerance. We will organize such a summer
school again next year, and if we nd funds we
will develop a second summer school for Uni-
versity students.

Financials
Muraviovka Park is a non-prot organization that does not have full-time researchers and educators
on sta. The Amur Bird Project is organized by private and all participants pay their travel costs and
living expenses by themselves. For the realization of the work we always depend on nancial sup-
port. In 2015, we received nancial support by the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund,
Förderkreis Allgemeine Biologie e.V., The Sound Approach and through fundraising by the Natur-
schutzbund Regionalverband Erzgebirge (NABU RVE) e.V. and private donors. Five participants
were awarded with a scholarship of the German Student Exchange Service (DAAD). Additional sup-
port was received by Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. A complete overview of the project costs and the funds
received in 2015 is given in table 1.
In former years we achieved funds from Muraviovka Park (2011-2013), Deutsche Ornithologen-
Gesellschaft e.V. (2013), Oriental Bird Club (2013), International Crane Foundation (2013), Na-
turschutzbund Deutschland e.V. (2013), Förderkreis Allgemeine Biologie e.V. (2012), ProRing e.V.
(2012-2013), Ornithologischer Verein zu Leipzig e.V. (2013) and by numerous private donors, which
helped us to buy most of the equipment which is still in use.

Outlook
In 2016 we want to continue our standardized monitoring programs with point-stop counts during
breeding season and bird ringing during both spring and autumn seasons. Bird ecology summer
camps for children and students are planned again for the summer.
To enable constant long-term work, we need new facilities at Muraviovka Park. Together with the
sta of the Park, we started to plan a building in 2015, which will cost around 10.000 Euro. The
small wooden house would contain a central stove, two dormitories, a dining room and a lab. This
would get the Amur Bird Project to the next step, allowing us to work much more ecient. In 2015
we secured 1.000 Euro for that purpose, and right now we are waiting for the ocial building per-
mission. But for making this possible, we still need 9.000 Euro / 740.000 Rubles. Further money is
needed to keep the eld work running. Please donate now!
The money is collected by the German nature conservation organization NABU RVE e.V. and will be
100% used for the Amur Bird Project.
