About this book

Language: Swedish with English summaries

This volume of the Swedish Bird Ringing Atlas is the third and last volume and includes Passerines. All species with recoveries are included, which means that ringed species with no recoveries are excluded. The presentations include only recoveries of birds ringed in Sweden. In most species, recoveries of birds ringed abroad and found in Sweden exist as well. These recoveries have not been included in this presentation since many of them are not computerised, neither at the Museum in Stockholm nor at the Ringing Centre where they belong. Included in the presentations are all recoveries that have been handled at the Ringing Centre up to and including 2003. The ringer's own recaptures have only been included if the distance from the ringing site exceeds 10 km. Birds that have been recognised by marking methods other than the metal ring, for example colour rings or neck collars, have not been included.

For each species the record contains ringing sites from where the birds were recovered, ringing statistics, maps and circular statistics, separate maps showing recoveries from different seasons if enough data are available, recovery statistics, finding circumstances, and a life table.
