The article gives the first assessment of the current state of farmland birds’ biodiversity in the South of Tyumen region. The trends of changes in species diversity and resilience of bird communities in the fallow lands during progressive succession are identified. Ecological and faunistic features of the avifauna of the surveyed territories of Tyumen region are considered.
