Abstract: 

A census of water fowl and wader migratory birds in the Gilan wetlands is carried out every year at the same time, with a census of the mid-winter migratory waterfowl birds conducted by the International Wetlands Organization from 5-24 January. Results of the direct census conducted during the years 2003, 2004 and 2005 show that the size of the bird population in the Gilan wetlands is declining. But, as a percentage of the total bird population, the number of migratory birds in Boojagh National Park has increased to 23.9%. Ducks (Anatidae) had the highest Population in the site with 15,580 individual birds, which is 7.6 times higher than the census result for the year 2003 and 8.3 times higher than in 2004. This increasing is very noticeable among surface feeding ducks with 14,984 birds.
