Latest atlas

The Atlas "Birds of Moscow City and the Moscow Region" will be published in June 2006. It is the result of 6-years collecting all records of birds of all species in Moscow and Moscow Region ("Moskovskaya Oblast´") during the course of the ongoing Program "Birds of Moscow and the Moscow Region" (401 participants). Totally 472 maps show points of breeding, winter and other records of 273 species separately in Moscow and in the Region.



Previous atlases

Birds of Moscow City

Census period: 2006-2011. Method: Breeding criteria in 2 x 2 km squares, all species counted. Atlas includes breeding, wintering and migrating birds. Atlas was published in 2014.



Ongoing atlases

A new atlas project mapping the distribution of the breeding birds of European Russia was launched in 2012. Method: Breeding criteria in 50 x 50 km squares. Maps of relative abundance will be generated from semi-quantitative information from the observers. The project will run over the coming eight years and will involve more than 200 professional ornithologists and more than 500 volunteers, collecting data over a 13 year period (2005-2017). The first breeding bird atlas for European Russia is planned to be published in 2019, all the data will be available for The EBCC Atlas of European Breeding Birds II.
