Abstract: [no abstract available originally]

[Summary]: The settlement mound at Kazanluk (Early Neolithic, 6000-5000 years B. C.) is the richest of bird bone remains prehistoric settlement in Bulgaria. Unpublished data on 8 species, represented by 19 bones and 14 specimens. are adduced: Tetrao ietrix, Otis tarda, Grus grus, Cygnus olor, Aquila chrysaetos, Tetrao urogalliis, Bubo bubo, and Corvus corone cornix. The first seven of them are included in the Red Data Book of Bulgaria as rare or endangered species of the recent Bulgarian avifauna. These data add our scanty information on the distribution and species composition of birds in the country during the Early Holocene. They indicate the wider distribution of some of the rare bird species of the recent Bulgarian fauna in the past.
