Migratory song thrushes Turdus philomelos
hunted in Europe: survival rates and other
demographic parameters
Vladimir A. Payevsky1 and Vadim G. Vysotsky
Long-distance ringing recoveries of song thrushes ringed in the Eastern Baltic between 1957and 1999 were analysed to determine the circumstances of recovery and annual survivalrate. Of 358 recoveries, 86 % referred to birds killed by hunters and bird-catchers. The high-est proportions of recoveries due to hunting were recorded in France, Italy, Spain, and Por-tugal (73–93 %), whereas in other countries only 28 % were recovered in this way. Survivalprobabilities of the song thrush estimated for different time periods varied between 0.368 and0.420 for first-year birds and between 0.561 and 0.633 in adults. In the British Isles, wherethe song thrush is mainly a year-round resident and is not a quarry bird, adult survival ratesdid not differ from the values obtained for the Baltic populations, whereas first-year survivalwas somewhat higher than in Baltic birds.
Key words: Song thrush, Turdus philomelos, first-year survival rate, annual adult survival rate,age distribution, hunting bag.

The overall recovery rate of song thrushes is very low For British song thrushes, Thomson et al. (1997, 1999) (no more than 1.5–2 %), as in other passerines. On the found no evidence that reporting probability varies be- basis of 1958–1999 data there is a correlation between tween first-year and adult birds.

We can therefore assume that over 60 % of song thrushes hunted are immatures, and that the immature/adult ratio in the hunting bag is 1.6 Despite these calculations, some doubt remains whether the age distribution in the hunting bag indeed reflects the true proportion of age classes in nature. Al- though immatures and adults are shot in equal propor- tions, we have no information on adults just because they have not been ringed. It may be assumed, however, that immatures are more likely to be shot due to their Some published data sets on breeding performance of thrushes (Haartman 1969, Malchevsky & Pukinsky1983, Payevsky 1985) suggest that the mean producti- * the EURING codes 1, 3, and 5 in the process of ring- vity of the song thrushes studied in north-western Rus- sia and Finland does not exceed 3 young fledged per * * the EURING codes 2, 4, and 6 in the process of ring- breeding pair per breeding attempt (estimate based on clutch size of 4.3–5.2 eggs, breeding success of 42–61 % and 10–20 % of pairs which have a second breed- from the similar example of passerine birds trapped at ing attempt after a successful first brood).
