From the field guide, it appears that only Tawny and maybe Long-eared Owls are possible.
Also, interesting to see the egg dates are all Springtime. In the USA our most commonly seen Great Horned Owl has egg dates as early as Jan. 2 in many parts of the east.
Maybe some finches to look forward to?
Cheers,
Marc

Hy Marc,
You would find better the owls in the parks of Budapest at the winter season.
For example the “Asio otus” owls are forming groups as usually in this period and move to the pine trees. I often watched and documented more than 20 owls in the trees of Tamariska-domb (hill) Csepel (island). Csepel is a district in the south-part of Budapest.
But you would watch owls –as Balázs wrote- in the trees of the Kerepesi-uti cemetery or in the Népliget, Városliget or in the Városmajor city parks too.
The well-known and favourite “Stix aluco” owl of Margitsziget had left his usual hollow in the horse-chestnut tree. A storm broke some braches of this tree at the last summer. And I hope that she survived the trial. Today, sorry I do not know where his new territory is.
Regards, János
Ps.: Use always binocular if you try owls! You would not find them without it between the dark branches of pine-tree tops.

Marc, looking for owls is quite hard. Of course You'll hear them in the breeding season, but now You have to be lucky to spot them.

Tawny Owl is breeding in most proper habitats (old trees) in bigger town parks. There used to be a male in Margaret Island that used to roost daytime on the same place mostly. Now there is one in Népliget, but I don't know the exact spot. Anyway, Népliget in wintertime is an excellent place to see Fieldfare, Redwing, Song and Mistle Thrush at the same time.

Long-eared Owls come to winter in towns (and more and more of them even nest). They gather to flocks in the daytime on pine trees in quiet areas. In Budapest You might find them near the centre in Kerepesi cemetery and there is a traditional roosting spot in Tamariska hill (Csepel island).

Great Horned Owl is a close relative to our Eagle Owl. Eagle Owl is one of our earliest breeding bird. It is quite rare and You're right, better not disturbed in breeding time. It has eggs in the end of winter. But not unusual when Long-eared Owls lay eggs so early.

In spring You have to go to Naplás lake, and You'll her the unmistakeable call of Scops Owl, but now they have already migrated.

If You travel to the plains, You might see Little Owl, and if You are lucky it's the best time for Short-eared owls.

Winter wisitor finches eg. Bramblings and Bullfinches are around now, You'll find them I'm sure.

I'm sure You see Goldcrests on pine trees, look for the eyebrowed ones. It's a good time to look for Firecrests!

Good luck!

Since the leaves are falling, I am thinking of Owls. What owl species are most common in the forests of the Buda Hills?
Please no specific directions to known nests. We do not want to disturb the upcoming breeding season. I only ask for general information.
Also, Thanks for the Budapest tips Balázs and Peter.

Dear friends,

thank you very much for the opportunity to share ideas for people who unfortunately aren't good enough in Hungarian (like me). I would like to hear some opinions about the peregrine that was seen at Ürboi halastavak, Apaj on Oct., 26th and aparently also later.
I was on Oct., 26th at Ürboi halastavak, lucky to see the juvenile Buff-Breasted Sandpiper on the north-eastern fishpond that was drained at that time. By that occasion I spotted on the same fishpond on the eastern shore a peregrine feeding on some prey (probably some dead fish). What striked me was the colouring of the neck which was clearly brownish with a dark vertical stripe in the middle. Through the scope at the distance perhaps 400m it was impossible to get enough details but I wonder if that could be some colour variation or even ssp. brookei (perhaps an escape?). Unfortunately after few seconds was the bird disturbed and flew off with the prey. Did someone notice the details?
@Marc:
I would say that Palotai sziget is in winter very well worth visiting. I saw there occasionally black- and red-throated divers, velvet scoters, red-breasted merganser, scaups and others. Just take the metro M3 to Ujpest-varoskapu and then few stops the bus 104. The best place is near the ferry to Bekasmegyer. Another place I love is Kavicsos-to in the very south of Budapest - in summer and winter - bee-eaters, black-necked grebes, occasionally red-necked grebe. Take the Csepel HEV to last stop and then bus Nr. 38 to get there.

Greetings
Peter

Salvete amici!
Special greeting to you Balazs. I hope we meet again soon.
Anyone have favorite local spots to bird from public transit in Budapest?
I am searching for a spot nearby to bird throughout the year and have a peaceful hike. Margit Island and Hajogyari Island are close to me. But I haven't found much there. Anyone else a regular birder of these Islands can add information about the highlights of them?

I found another spot by taking the 1 Tram to its end at the Eurocenter. I hiked up the hills birding the forest. It's great exercise. Finally, after Hármashatár hegy, is Viragos nyereg which has 3 habitats: wildflower fields, forest and agriculture. I haven't birded there much yet, but will start reporting what I find.

Hi Marc,

welcome to the forum! We, PKMK birders still meet every Wednesday, so You can join us anytime.

My favourite spot on Margit Island is on the North side, by the thermal lake. I hope to see Waxwings there this winter.
Hajogyari Island's best place is the North corner. There are a lot of of passerines and woodpeckers, and looking the water towards North You'll find plenty of ducks in wintertime. A good chance to see Tufted ducks, Goldeneyes, mergansers, cormorants and sometimes Scaups.

Hármashatár hegy can be a good birding spot, I don't know anyone visiting that place regualarly, so maybe You'll find something exiting.

One of the best places for birding in Budapest is Naplás lake. You can get there by bus Nr. 192. I recommend to use http://utvonal.bkv.hu homepage to plan public transport routes.

I think it is better to go out of the town for birding. If you have time on weekends, You'll always find some birder You can join.
