This paper gives a quantitative assessment of seasonal aspects of the bird population on the basis of the data of year-round counts in the city of Kemerovo and its vicinity in 1999–2001. Seasonal changes in the total number of birds, species richness, dominating species, total biomass, amount of the energy transformed by birds, and their tier distribution and faunal composition are characterized and compared for all habitats surveyed. Differences in the seasonal dynamics of the bird population in the habitats belonging to residential and forest–field landscapes are assessed.
