The dynamics of a little bustard population in the northern steppe Trans-Urals is considered. After some period of its almost complete absence in the 1970s and 1980s, since the early 1990s, temporarily empty parts of the habitat have been inhabited again and an increase in the population is observed. By the beginning of the 21st century, the Little Bustard almost restored its previous habitat in the region. By the end of the 1990s, the average population density over the agro-landscape reached 1 ind/km2. By the end of the first decade of the 2000s it exceeded 2 ind/km2. In recent years, the Little Bustard is rarely observed in steppe pastures but can more often be met on long-term grass crops and reaped grain fields, and the most part of its population (up to 70 – 80% of all couples) inhabits fallow lands whose appearance and preservation are due to the steady reduction of the agricultural industry over the last two decades.
