Abstract:
This data set contains the morphometric information for birds caught in mistnets and with other means for sampling Avian Influenza (AI). These data were collected during fall migration on Iturup Island, Kurile Island Chain, Russian Far East, during fall (August-September) in collaboration with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, USA. On Iturup, the locations of Ribaky (lat 45 12 34,97 N, long147 50 55,63 E), Kurilsk, Reydovo (lat 45 13 31,11 N, long 148 03 36,18 E), Tornaya Bay (lat 45 19 31,91 N, long 148 25 11,83 E), Kitovyi (lat 45 15 34,33 N, long 147 52 49,77 E), Burevestnik (lat 44 55 56,41 N, long 147 36 41,47 E) and Gorniy (lat 44 55 41,07 N, long 147 34 25,51 E) were sampled. It was assumed that some birds in that region link with Alaska. This dataset focuses on passerines, shorebirds and seabirds. Measurements from 133 species are reported in the dataset. Avian Influenza analysis of samples is coming forward, and will be published elsewhere. Here we present on traditional bird banding and measurements of birds caught opportunistically in the framework of the AI sampling campaign 2006. This dataset links with 6 other sites in the Russian Far East, and is compatible to other bird banding studies along the flyway. It represents for the first time a coordinated study done during fall migration and with identical methods at 6 sites within the Sea of Okhotsk region, Russian Far East. Data from the other study sites are also available online. An analysis of these data is coming forward; for details please contact authors and project collaborators.
Purpose:
These data were collected in order to link the potential occurrence of Avian Influenza in the Russian Far East with morphometric measures for the same individuals. Data from this site are compatible with 6 other locations where the same data where collected following an identical protocol. This would allow to learn more about state of the birds, subspecies, migration tactics, flyways and Avian Influenza.
Supplemental_Information:
The sampling and banding sites are geo-referenced. The following sites were surveyed by the survey team members: Ribaky (lat 45 12 34,97 N, long 147 50 55,63 E), Kurilsk, Reydovo (lat 45 13 31,11 N, long 148 03 36,18 E), Tornaya Bay (lat 45 19 31,91 N, long 148 25 11,83 E), Kitovyi (lat 45 15 34,33 N, long 147 52 49,77 E), Burevestnik (lat 44 55 56,41 N, long 147 36 41,47 E) and Gorniy (lat 44 55 41,07 N, long 147 34 25,51 E). The Avian Influenza component of this study is currently in progress and will be reported elsewhere. For details, please contact authors. The Banding Protocol followed the 'revised European African Songbird Migration Network' standards (Bairlein et al. 1995; available online) and used the Kaiser fat score. The suggested field protocol is included in the methods section for transparency. The AI data are coming forward, they can be linked with this data set by the banding and individual id number. The AI data have a database of their own.

Methodology_Description:
Field: The following sites were surveyed by the team members: Ribaky, Tornaya Bay, Reydovo, Kitoviy and Burevestnik . For dates and coordinates please see database. We used a protocol that is viryually identical with the 'revised African-European Songbird Migration Network' banding scheme. Lab: Data were cleaned and worked up in EXCEL. The detailed protocol is the following: Bird Banding Protocol, Summer/Fall Season 2006 (version 2: Fairbanks 10th July 2006) Bird Bands are provided by the local contractors for each of the birds caught and swaped for this project (>1500; this includes passerines, shorebirds, gulls and waterfowl). Bird Band Numbers are used as a reference for linking AI swap samples stored in tubes. If bird is not banded, use a unique and well documented code for birds, e.g. date+species+number. Bird Data to be collected: Full Name of Collector (full name, no abbreviations) Location of Sample Collection (local name, English and Russian) Coordinates of Sample (latitude and longitude; use GPS if possible) Net Number where sample was caught/collected (if possible, provide map/sketch of net setup) Date of Sample Collection (day day, month month, year year year year) Time of Sample Collection (local time 00.00 - 24.00h) Species Name 1 (English name; subspecies if possible) Species Name 2 (Scientific name only if appropriate) Bird Band Number (if collected; assumes Russian banding scheme. Mark if from dropping or dead bird) Wing length (in millimeters, flattened and unflattened for international compatibility and science reasons) Head to Beak (maximum in millimeters; not used for passerines) (Tarsus and Beak Length is not measured; can be done voluntarily by the bander. Document method used) Age (follow EURING standards; see Manual enclosed) Sex (where possible; document method used to determine) Primaries (BTO Moult Score Card; see Manual enclosed) Body Moult (Beginning, Middle, End judged by expert knowledge =majority of feathers) Body Fat (Kaiser Scale; see reference enclosed) Weight (in grams; to the nearest 0.1 g for birds weighing <200 g) Feather Samples (5 each: Growing Feathers, Body, Secondary, Tail Central: plug not cut. For Primaries, please use one from outer 10th) Blood samples (usually not taken, unless for specific species and numbers and when Falk Huettmann is around; consult with Falk Huettmann for details) Photo taken ? (usually not taken, unless for specific species of interest (e.g. document outliers) or when Falk Huettmann is around; consult with Falk Huettmann for details; document the film role and/or digital camera) Comments: Anything relevant to understand, analyze and interprete the sample and data DIGITAL DATA: Please make sure that the Banding Data as well as the AI Sampling Data are keyed in, and provided, as an EXCEL sheet according to the data scheme above (see Excel template enclosed). Metadata will be created as well (see Word template enclosed).
