Common Birds

Eastern Europe is a destination for many birders who wish to tick off species that are rare or absent in the west. However, there are many birds here of course that are also found in the rest of Europe, but in many cases they are more common. Here is one common, but nevertheless fine species... a Song Thrush in Hungary.

Spring: White Stork

Spring is here in Eastern Europe ! Migrant birds are pouring back and many are already breeding, such as this White Stork Ciconia ciconia on a roadside utility pole in Hungary. Photo by Gerard Gorman, Kiskunsag, April 2013.
