White Wagtail Becomes Bird of Year in Russia

Russian Birds Conservation Union has chosen the bird of the year for the sixteenth time already.
      
      This year the title goes to the white wagtail, which meets all requirements: it is spread on the major part of the territory of this country, is easily recognizable and needs attention and help of people.
      
      White wagtail is a bird with a long rocking tail, about 18 cm long. Its colouring is black and grey and white, varying in details with birds from different parts of the country. Young birds are grey. White wagtails nest in flood plains of rivers, on banks of water reservoirs and in settlements.
      
      In 2011 the Russian Birds Conservation Union plans to collect phenological data about life of these birds, estimate their number in different regions of the country, find their roosting areas and find out any dangers threaten them, organize mass manufacture of birdhouses of various constructions and see how wagtails will estimate new dwellings.
