During a 16-day expedition in may 2005 the migration of Pacific Golden Plovers through the Mongol-Daguur Strictly Protected Area in North-Eastern Mongolia was monitored. Pacific Golden Plovers were caught using a Wilsternet. Additionally, passing flocks were counted, and casualties during catching were dissected.

Sampling Methods

Pacific Golden Plovers were caught and ringed with the use of a wilsternet. The catchers wait behind a hide at about 30 metres distance from the net, with a pulling line attached to it. Besides dummy birds and a whistle to imitate the bird calls, a speaker setup playing recorded calls of the Pacific Golden Plover was used to attract the birds. The following variables were determined for all caught Pacific Golden Plovers; sex, age, body mass, and the sizes for wings, tatoe, headbill and bill. Casualties occurred among the caught birds, these were dissected, and additionally measured for the weight of body fat and the length of the digestive tract.

Study Extent During two weeks samples have been collected daily, at two locations. From the 15th of may until the 24th of May the sample location was Galuut Nuur lake and from the 26th of may untill the 30th of May the Khukh Nuur lake.
