After 25 years as an independent member organization, Lista Bird Observatory was from April 1st reorganized and the operation of the Observatory became a part of the Norwegian Ornithological Society (NOF), the Norwegian Birdlife partner.

LIBO and Jomfruland Annual repport 2013 (18.03.2015)
A new report from Lista and Jomfruland bird observatories is published. The full report (in Norwegian) can be downloaded. In 2013, especially birds that feed on invertebrates taken from the ground, like Lapwings and Woodcock, got serious problems in the early spring. A portion of the first Lapwings that arrived to Norway, nesting at Lista, died of cold / starvation. It was unusually cold throughout Europe in this period and the first migratory birds that arrived was evidently in very poor condition.

The first known hybrid from two different genera within the Muscicapidae family.

Noen ganger kan det nytte! (14.01.2015)
NVE valgte å si nei til konsesjonssøknaden om vindkraftverk på Siragrunnen den 13.januar. Dette var et vindkraftverk som kunne ha kommet rett i Lista Fuglestasjons nærområde. I prosessen har stasjonens materiale og kunnskap om fuglene som trekker gjennom området vært viktig, sammen med andre faktorer. Ved fuglestasjonen er vi svært fornøyd med at vårt materiale kommer til nytte i behandlingen av slike store og viktige saker.

Flocks of different sizes are constantly trying to migrate from the lighthouse area, and the daily numbers of migrating birds as well as ringed birds are higher than ever before.

Blue tit movements over Lista (06.04.2014)
Skye-blue hood, black mask and yellow-breasted, small and aggressive. Blue tit is a well-known bird for many, and bird ringers are well familiar with the strength that lies in a blue tit bill. After a day of ringing blue tits, fingers can be quite sore. A substantial movement of blue tits crosses Lista each autumn, and here we take a closer look at what characterizes this movement.

Earlier migration of greylag geese (15.08.2013)
Autumn migration for greylag geese peaks in Southern Norway these days, and many greylags are seen crossing the Lista peninsula. We present an analysis of the migration counts from Lista Bird Observatory from 1990 until 2012 showing that the peak of migration has moved forward in time compared to the 90s. While autumn migration seems to be strongly influenced by the start of the hunting season, spring migration could be influenced by the earlier arrival of spring. The shift in spring migration corresponds to about one week, and for autumn migration the shift is approximately two weeks.
