The number of birds arrived in the Rehabilitation Centre decreased between October-December compared to the previous period. Fortunately this year we didn’t have to confront the usual high number of weakened birds from early winter as we expected, as the temperatures were low and the snow cover was thick. Although the number of persons who contacted us was significant (33), relatively few birds, only 11 individuals were transported to us. Other 12 birds were treated directly through telephone advices.

It seems that this winter we can expect a new wave of invasion of Waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus) also in Romania.
As in the winter 2004-2005, Milvus Group decided to collect all the possible data of the species again, in order to evaluate this influx’s magnitude and spatial distribution in Romania.
We apply for all who have any Waxwing data from the 2012-2013′s winter period, we ask them to send these data to the following e-mail address szilárd.email@example.com with the subject “bombycilla”.
We will collect these data up to 1st May 2013. Please provide the following information about the observations: date, locality name (or GPS location), county, number of observed birds and the observer(s) name. After data analysis and processing we will inform all the observers about the results of the survey!
