Effectiveness of sonic repellents against the Rooks in Kulunda Steppe (Altai Krai, Russia)


A.V. Matsyura

We performed field study of Rooks' repellence by sonic repellent within 2016-2017 in Kulunda Steppe (Altai Krai). We studied the impact of sonic device equipped with alarm/stress Rooks calls and evaluated degree of bird response towards them. We suggested that use of specie-specific stress or alarm calls with high degree of domestic relevance scare birds even from the roosting and feeding habitats.
