The Atlas is a complete collection of distribution maps of all 273 breeding, migrant, nomadic and wintering bird species recorded in Moscow City and the Moscow Region during 1999-2004. The maps are accompanied by brief texts characterising their status in the region, graphs illustrating their seasonal presence and about 900 photos of all 273 recorded bird species.
The book summarises the data collected by 401 birdwatchers and professional ornithologists during six years of fieldwork for the programme "Birds of Moscow and the Moscow Region" or received from several research and conservation projects, and information derived from the literature published after 1999. The Atlas shows the recent distribution of birds in Moscow City and the Moscow Region. These data can be used for educational, conservational and scientific purposes.
