Ornithologists say the flights of migratory birds to Yakutia are of accidental nature
Ornithologists say that the birds, unusual for Yakutia, fly to the republic by chance, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports.
“This happens by accident due to the fact that some individuals go apart from the flock during the spring and autumn migrations. They do it either themselves, or with other birds. They just catch the streams of air and fly away. Thus, we observe such patterns that are unusual for our republic,” commented Evgeny Shemyakin, candidate of biological sciences, researcher at the Institute of Biology.
According to the scientists, about 50 species of avian birds are recorded in Yakutia during a year. Residents of Yakutia discover only part of them.
Earlier, a petrel was first found in the republic. Also, horse breeders of the Nyurba region found a flamingo.
