Sampling Methods

The material was collected during field excursions along pre-planned routes. Bird counts were carried out using vocal stimulation. Field work was carried out in March-July 2016 on the territory of Ivatsevichi and Gantsevichi districts of the Brest region, Petrikovsky, Mozyr, Kalinkovichi, Rechitsa, Zhlobinsky, Rogochevsky, Svetlogorsk, Buda-Koshelevsky districts of the Gomel region, the Republic of Belarus.

Study Extent Part of the material was collected during the implementation of the project: Identifiaction of potential Emeral Network Sites in the Polesie region with the financial support of the Frankfurt Zoological Society. The author is grateful to Vakhniy N., Pavlikovsky P. for help in conducting research and species identification.
Quality Control The author is fully responsible for the quality of data provided within the published dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Conducting of field research.
  2. Vocal stimulation of birds in order to get vocal response and identify the species.
  3. Visual identification of specific composition of flora and fauna.
