Reproductive parameters of great and azure tits in Baraba forest-steppe (Southern West Siberia)

  • V. M. Chernyshov


On the basis of multi-year data, the intrapopulation and individual variability of nesting terms, number of eggs, oomorphological parameters, and success of reproduction are analyzed for great and azure tits in the Baraba forest-steppe near Chany Lake. The reproductive parameters of both tit species are characterized by a strong seasonal and yearly variability. The species differ in nesting terms, fertility, and reproductive features. The obtained data are compared with the literature data for other parts of their geographic ranges.
