Migration study of Great Bustard Otis tarda in Eastern Mongolia

The Great Bustard is an endemic species in Eurasian steppe ecosystem which is assessed as globally and regionally “Vulnerable” by IUCN Red list category. The huge adult male great bustard is possibly the heaviest living flying animal. It is also arguably the most sexual dimorphic extant bird species, in terms of the size difference between males and females. These heavy-bodied birds also perform spectacular breeding displays, and exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism. These stem from the ‘lek’ breeding system of these species, in which males compete for female attention at traditional gathering sites each spring.

Chukh Bird Research Station in northeast Mongolia

Our monitoring activities include biometric measurements, ringing and tracking activities. There are 58 species of shorebirds have been recorded in Mongolia. Of them 36 species have been observed and 32 species trapped in Chukh lake. The leg flag at the protocol for Mongolia is blue over green and we used metal ring on the left leg as well. During the monitoring, a joint team trapped and ringed total 409 individuals from 32 species of shorebirds. We also tracked 10 percent of the total trapped birds including Black-tailed Godwits, Asian Dowitcher, Eurasian Curlews and Black-winged Stilts.
