The purpose of this research is devoted to investigation of the dynamics of employment birds on local watering places in the forest steppe zone of Ukraine. Special attention is given to comparison of display aggressive behavior Bird Family Tits (Paridae) in nature and in terms of anthropogenic loading area. Approximately 1-2 hour displacement in daily maxima behavioral acts birds on a watering place during the day in different areas with preservation the overall distribution time was found. We have established a correlation relationship between aggression and behavioral acts for each of the species of family and their differences in the nature and in the presence of anthropogenic factor. The manifestation of aggression on watering place of Great Tits and Marsh Tit is correlated with behavioral acts of nature, but not in areas with pronounced anthropogenic factor. Blue Tit actively demonstrates aggression for resources in nature, and anthropogenic pressures territory. Between aggression of Great Tit and Marsh Tit was found correlation with the presence of representatives their species and the overall level of aggression birds on the local watering place. Blue Tit is a little aggressive species that greater attention gives to interspecific hierarchy than intraspecific. Regularities differences in these different areas studied and for different years of research is quite coordinated for the life of species in each grouping of birds. In turn, the study disclose some possible scenarios aggressive behavior on the local watering place for something different territories. Differences of involvement tits in social interactions are important to explain individual differences in adaptive behavior of animals and probably are part of the evolutionary process. Obtained data can be used to establish of the plasticity behavioral of members of Family Tits.
