How do I know if it is advised to upload an observation?

Every wild living bird observation can be uploaded to our site, but we prefer to get data about rare and scarce, and regionally interesting birds. Common species that are common in the whole coutry in every season (eg. Great Tit, Blackbird, Magpie, Common Buzzard, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch, Mallard, Greenfinch) are only preferred only on good grounds (eg. exceptionally great flock).

You can find the status of all species in species list.

How to use Google maps on uploading, and how to correct misaligned location?

First choose nearest town. Wait for the map to load, then you can move the position marker with the mouse to the exact location.

It is important to hide the nest location if the species is strictly protected or sensitive.


Editing a mispositioned marker after data is uploaded is a bit tricky. Edit the observation sheet, change the town, wait a few seconds, then choose the correct town, after that the marker place is movable.

What do ad, juv, imm, pull abbreviations mean?


The age of birds can be told in some cases. Tipically long living and slow maturing birds show different plumage in their first years. The following age groups are distinguished:


pull. = pullus - nestling (has no flight feathers)

juv. = juvenilis - young (changed nestling plumage, but hatched only this year)

imm.  = immaturus - not mature (in many cases similar to adult, but different plumage, not breeding yet)

subad.  = subadult - nearly adult (specimen of slowly maturing species (eg. bigger birds of prey) similar plumage to adults, able to breed)

ad. = adult - adult (tipical plumage of the species)
