Abstract:

In this attempt to describe birdlife in Chios Archipelago we record ed 211 species, most of which are migrants and visitors. Large concentrations of birds appear during migration and suffer a heavy hunting pressure (shooting and liming). The most important bird areas are Psara and Dotia with mainly bushy vegetation. The authors propose the establisment of a marine and island park in Psara-Antipsara archipelago for the protection of birds during migration.
