Abstract: [no abstract available originally]

[Summary]: Paleontology is a biological, but not a geological science. A short review of the development and achievements of the studies on fossil and subfossil birds of the World, East Europe and Bulgaria is presented. Less than 3 % of the paleontologists of the World study birds, but the annual number of the published scientific articles arose more than ten times since the beginning of the 20-th century. The number of the known species of fossil birds in 1996 is over 1600 (as compared to 691 species in 1933). The bibliography on Bulgarian fossil and subfossil birds consists of about 70 publications. The paleoornithology (incl. archaeornithology) in Bulgaria is a highly promising and perspective field of paleozoological investigations.
