Bird circled in the UK in 2005 16 years later in Florianopolis - SoCientífica

Quinnet, in Wales, was identified by the British Ringing Agency on 30 July 2005 on the island of Parche, just one year old when the bird was released.

Now, 16 years later, the bird Found On October 31, in Priya Brava, Florianopolis, PM-BS (Santos Basin Beach Monitoring Project) crew were killed while monitoring the beaches daily.

Since September 29, 2021, more than 20 birds of this species have been found off the coast of Florianopolis.

The R3 animal group explains that when they become weak, these birds run to the ground and may die. That is what happened to this bird, which was found 9,900 kilometers away from the spot where it was identified.

Small phobos birds found in Florianopolis

In a month, it is the 25th bird of the species to be found on the capital’s beaches. Unfortunately, only six people were alive at the time of the rescue and died because they were so weak.

Suelen Goulart, biologist and technical assistant at PMP-BS / R3 Animal (Santos Basin Beach Monitoring Project) in Florianopolis, explains that this species is common in the continental shelf waters of southern Brazil after its breeding season in the north of the hemisphere from May. Until September

“These are birds that can be seen in the open ocean from September to November, and their presence in coastal areas and beaches occurs mainly when the wind brings in weak or severe weather,” Soolan commented.

Bird race

They are birds of the Procellularidae family and the order Procellulariformes. In this way, they are sea tigers with pelagic or marine habits similar to albatrosses and other petrols.

“The little Jester is a small bird compared to the rest of its family, with 82 centimeters of wings, dorsal body and black head, abdomen mostly white,” explains Soolan. Their length ranges from 30 to 38 centimeters.

“It is a migratory bird that breeds on islands in the North Atlantic, distributing it from Iceland to Portugal and along the east coast of the American continent,” says Soulan.

Sound value for species conservation

Flying seabirds that are rehabilitated and released by the actions of the R3 animal through PMP-BS receive a ring (identification ring).

If it is restored, the unique alphanumeric code will be marked, which allows the individual to be recognized.

In Brazil, SNA (National Ringing System) manages Cemave (National Center for Wildlife Research and Conservation) and provides bands affiliated with ICMBio.

Therefore, by observing and identifying rings, the bird can track detachment and the fate of each individual from the curved area, providing valuable information on migration, population trends, and the use of natural habitats of organisms.
