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 in the Hokkaido region, Japan, at 11 locations (Daikoku-tou Muroran-City latitude 42.2082 longitude 140.5567, Erimo-cho latitude 40.0000 longitude 143.1000, Lake Komuke Monbetsu latitude 44.1600 longitude 143.3000, Lake Utonai Tomakomai latitude 42.4237 longitude 141.4262, Naganuma-cho latitude 42.5437 longitude 141.4014, Rubeshibe latitude 43.4700 longitude 143.3400 Shiragami Matsumae-cho latitude 41.2400 longitude 140.1100 Shunkunitai Nemuro latitude 43.1590 longitude 145.2753 WLC (patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC Kushiro latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC(patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 ) during fall (15th June - 10th October 2006) in collaboration with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, USA. It was assumed that some birds in that region link with Alaska. This dataset focuses on passerines, raptors, shorebirds and seabirds. Avian Influenza samples were taken from from 74 species and available morphometric measurement are reported for theme in the dataset. Avian Influenza analysis of samples is coming forward, and will be published elsewhere. Here we present on traditional bird banding and opportunistic measurements of birds caught 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 analsis 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 northern Japan and the Russian Far East with morphometric measures for the same individuals. Data from this site are compatible with 6 other locations of this flyway study 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: Daikoku-tou Muroran-City latitude 42.2082 longitude 140.5567, Erimo-cho latitude 40.0000 longitude 143.1000, Lake Komuke Monbetsu latitude 44.1600 longitude 143.3000, Lake Utonai Tomakomai latitude 42.4237 longitude 141.4262, Naganuma-cho latitude 42.5437 longitude 141.4014, Rubeshibe latitude 43.4700 longitude 143.3400 Shiragami Matsumae-cho latitude 41.2400 longitude 140.1100 Shunkunitai Nemuro latitude 43.1590 longitude 145.2753 WLC (patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC Kushiro latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC(patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 . 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 survey team: Daikoku-tou Muroran-City latitude 42.2082 longitude 140.5567, Erimo-cho latitude 40.0000 longitude 143.1000, Lake Komuke Monbetsu latitude 44.1600 longitude 143.3000, Lake Utonai Tomakomai latitude 42.4237 longitude 141.4262, Naganuma-cho latitude 42.5437 longitude 141.4014, Rubeshibe latitude 43.4700 longitude 143.3400 Shiragami Matsumae-cho latitude 41.2400 longitude 140.1100 Shunkunitai Nemuro latitude 43.1590 longitude 145.2753 WLC (patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC Kushiro latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 WLC(patient) latitude 43.0400 longitude 144.1700 . The Avian Influenza component of this study is currently in progress and will be reported elsewhere. For details, please contact authors. For general background of the Japanese situation, please consider as well the Japanese bird banding protocols etc. (mentioned in this metadata). 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. 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).

Process_Description:
Fully explained in Methodology; see protoco Please consider the general bird banding Japanese condistions, too: Banding projects can be governmental. It has been opperated by Yamachina Institute for Ornithology (<http://www.yamashina.or.jp/english/toppage.html>, <http://www.yamashina.or.jp/english/banding/index.html>), as an undertaken projects sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. Yamashina askes the local bird banders (licenced by the Institute), to participate in this program. These Japanese banders are asked to fill the "banding record sheetthat have been made by the Yamashina under agreements of the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. This is refered to as "a standard banding record sheet", or a standard banding protocol. In other hand, the banding activity of several endangered species is directely operated by the government. This is for Blakiston's Fish Owl, Steller's and White Tailed Eagles, Japanese Crane etc.
