Rufibrenta ruficollis

Because of the warm winter, some types of birds which are not incident to thus territory appeared in Odessa region.
This was announced on February, 17, by the associate professor of Mechnikov Odessa state university zoology department Anatoliy Korzyukov.
According to his information, there is a numerous accumulation of birds (about 20 thousand) in Odessa region at the moment, and 2 thousand of them are the Rufibrenta ruficollis (red crop brand goose) having been inserted to the Red Book.
“At the time being, 30-40% of Rufibrenta ruficollis usually living at Taimyr find themselves in the southern regions of Ukraine – partly in our district and partly in the northern Crimea. Usually these birds do hibernate in Bulgaria and Romania, but they stopped in Ukraine because of the warm winter”, said Mr. Korzyukov.
