Among snipe-eaters there is a bird that varies from its relatives. It stands apart as a form and also color of quill, actions, and even the lifestyle. It is a ruffian — — a kulik, which resembles an ornamental bird, despite the fact that it comes from the overload game.
Turukhtans have actually always been popular amongst seekers as well as were thought about a preferred premium delicacy. Due to this, they were drawn out in big amounts, which resulted in a substantial decrease in the species. Today, thanks to prompt actions taken, the populace of this bird managed to be brought back. Its removal is performed based on the regulation on searching.
Turukhtan is a relatively big, slim, long-legged goose. In the usual winter season plumage it is easy to perplex it with a sandpiper. Males are a lot larger than females. In springtime, a headscarf of long feathers expands on the neck of the dominant male, and something similar to the ears on the head. The coloring of these accessories can be very varied with different shades as well as shades. In the spring it is difficult to meet two males with the very same shade of quill. On the face of the man, currently, feathering is missing. The skin in this location is covered with a lot of little yellow growths.
The women ruff is colored even more modestly. On her dark rustic back, black places are randomly spread. Just the creamy colored belly stands out. The same after molting, the male becomes a guy, who already has no ears and also scarf.
Turukhtans refer to migratory birds. They primarily occupy northern Europe. They hibernate in the countries of southern Asia, Africa, and so on. These heat-loving birds fly to us at the end of April. They settle on damp fields, marshes, in river floodplains as well as along the financial institutions of other storage tanks. After the flight, the males gather for an existing, where a kind of routine begins. Like residence pitham men liquify feathers and also begin quick fights, for the right to mate with the female. These birds have a rigorous pecking order. Every so often the area of present is checked out by ladies that fly away after mating.
Women Ruffians organize a simple nest in the shrub, where 4 eggs are sometimes avoided 3 times. The man does not participate in the incubation. After around 20 days youths appear, who leave the nest on the initial day, however still remain near their mommy for a long period of time. Turukhtanka is a very good mommy. She frequently looks after chicks and also, in instance of threat, is commonly ready to compromise her life for conserving youngsters. At the age of one month the chicks come to be independent. Together with the mother and the males that had actually perenilivshim by the time go to the grain fields. Typically they can be discovered on the fields where millet grows, due to what they are called «« proschaynikami.»
» Spring search for rougthans is forbidden. To obtain them start at the beginning of the opening season on the duck. Real, already the majority of these heat-loving waders have actually handled to leave our lands. Fans of searching for swamp game shoot troublemakers en route of their flights to the grain areas. Effective hunting is an overtravel, in which several seekers must take part. Some long-lived amateurs of wader searching conceal ruffians or contend birds from the shelter. All the same, it will certainly succeed to hunt with a trained cop. Fraction in such a search must be utilized no more than the sixth number, but the weapon must have a heapy as well as sharp fight.
In the Stavropol Territory, many adherents of various kinds of hunting: a raid — — on wolves, with hounds — — on swines as well as foxes, with cops — — on feathered game, searching for waterfowl. As well as numerous lovers stray around for small waders — — waders. This is a very large team of birds, including (within Russia) regarding seventy varieties.
Hunting for waders has long been thought about a lordly as well as opened up on Petrov day, that is, on July 12. Now the hunting duration will certainly be shifted throughout of September. And if it is quite understandable with regard to those waders that remain in the Stavropol Region up until late autumn, it is completely unjustified for the removal of the troublemakers. This heat-loving bird currently by the middle of September leaves the boundaries of our region, taking place wintering more to the south. The same rouhtans are emerging in the tundra area, and currently at first of July their various groups load the shallows of Podmankov and Manych.
These are rather huge waders: men evaluate regarding 230 grams, women — — twice as small. They prey on the collected fields of wheat, millet, and also why they received a regional name — «—»« beggars ». Birds very promptly put on weight, and by August their carcasses form a solid lump of fat. Years earlier, searching for waterfowl and also wading birds opened in August, which permitted the successful extraction of brutes. As well as now in some areas of Russia with the opening of the autumn-summer period, birds are enabled to fly on these birds.
It would seem that reasoning is basic: the bird has ripened, the case is for farmers. The seekers are assisted by some other requirements: they are enabled to extract this bird only when the period for waterfowl opens up. As well as the cake was already passed that time. It turns out that they elevated a bird, fattened it and also let it go to the «« abroad uncle»»
. Hunting for rouhtanov has long been taken into consideration lordly. In pre-revolutionary Russia seekers might be relied on the fingers. As well as a kind of code of honor, a male with a gun executed rigorously: he could never ever have actually can be found in the head instead of a kulik to fire a duck brood, or another bird, which, as the writer composes, was not «« ripe»».
Now times have changed: only in the Stavropol area hunting organizations number more than forty thousand people. In such a huge family, as they claim, not without a freak: there are followers to contend whatever that stirs. And let us determine today the victim of the ruffian with the beginning of the search for the pigeon as well as the quail, the two-legged killers under this brand name will start to obtain both the goose as well as the village
