The species composition of winter avifauna in an arid province of Intramountain Dagestan, which integrates a transitive complex of birds inhabiting submountain and high-mountain areas of the republic, is studied. The dynamics of population density is determined, and peculiarities of spatial distribution of birds in five dominating types of landscapes (territorial units) are revealed.
