Abstract:

The test was carried out in the Central Poland, during the autumn migration in years 1997 and 1998, and the object was the Robin Erithacus rubecula. The aim of the study was the verification of the new field method for studying directional preferences in small Passerine migrants, proposed by Busse (1995). In total, 843 Robins were tested in "Busse's cage". Directions preferred by the tested birds were distributed in conformance with wintering areas and migration routes of the species known from literature. Robins with dark legs and grey plumage at flanks pointed at the directions according to the axis Scandinavia - the Balkans, which is in consistence with the literature data. Robins tested at daytime show stronger directionality than those tested at night. Birds tested with the sun visible expressed stronger directionality than those tested under overcast. The Robins tested at day more often pointed at the return direction - to the north and to the north-east. The activity of birds in the experimental cage increased at daytime with the lack of sun visible, and with overcast, and was higher in birds with smaller fat deposit, thus it reflected mainly the normal vital activity not associated with the migration.
