About this book

Language: Norwegian with English summaries

The Norwegian Bird Ringing Atlas presents the results of more than 80 years of ringing in Norway. From the ringing of the first bird, a House Martin in 1914, and until 2000, almost five million birds have been ringed. Almost all of this is due to the great number of voluntary ringers who have contributed an enormous amount of work through many years. In the course of the same period of time almost 100 000 recoveries have been reported to the Norwegian Ringing Scheme.

The aim of the Norwegian Bird Ringing Atlas is to present a unique material that has remained inaccessible for far too long. By means of maps and text the Atlas gives an outstanding insight into the migratory habits and movements of the birds throughout the year. Ringing is primarily a scientific method of collecting information about the time and direction of migration, wintering areas, resting sites and causes of death in the different species. There can also be differences within a species as regards sex, age groups and breeding areas. Information on all this, and more too, can be found in the species descriptions. Nevertheless, there is still a great deal of concealed information in this enormous ringing and recovery material. The authors therefore hope that the Atlas may be an inspiration to more detailed analyis, as well as the initiation of new ringing projects.

All the introductory chapters are written fully both in Norwegian and English and the main text for each species is in Norwegian with a summary for each species in English.
