Omsk oblast became a chosen place for white stock

As its home the bird has chosen a water-tower in Bogoduhovka village which is in Nazyvaevskiy district. Sergey Soloviev the Doctor of Biological Sciences and professor from Omsk State University named after F.M. Dostoevsky said that this is the first time when white stock decided to settle here and there were no mentions about it in scientific works. A few times these birds were seen in forest-steppe zone of Kurganskaya oblast but Nazyvaevskiy district became the most northern and eastern “home” for white stock. The scientists of our region said that new resident will feel comfortable here and be able to find a variety of food like warms, frogs, mice, moles, marmots and others. The white stocks have already been here for a little while since June 2015 and that means they are going to settle here and it is sort of a historic moment because we can witness the formation of Siberian population of white stocks.
