Keywords:avifauna, cultivated areas, vineyards, orchards, faunistical analysis, biogeographical analysis, ecological analysis, Vodno Mt. Macedonia
The qualitative survey of the avifauna of the extensively managed cultivated areas in the base of Vodno Mt., Macedonia, showed presence of 89 species, 38 of which are confirmed or probable breeders. According to the seasonal status, most numerous are the resident species (37), followed by the summer visitors (19 species). The faunistical analysis showed domination of the palearctic type of fauna, the biogeographical analysis showed great domination of the elements of the Balkan-middle-European forests, and the ecological analysis showed apsolute domination of the species adapted for life in the decidous forests. The comparison with the same habitat types in the lower part of the Skopje Basin and in Serbia showed low similarity, which is probably due to the biogeographical diferences among the compared regions.
