Long-eared Owls

A highlight every autumn and winter in Hungary is seeing Long-eared Owls (Asio otus) at their roosts. Not unusual to find a dozen or so in one tree and they are usually easy to photograph. Here is one from a recent tour.

Cranes, cranes, and more cranes!

Yes, it is that time of year again ! Eastern Hungary is now full of Common Cranes (Grus grus). Over 100,000 are estimated there right now. It is a great spectacle, and I have already taken birders there to see them! Off again soon, too.
