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 birding.hu species list.
Birding.hu aims to have a database of Hungarian birds which is up-to-date and reliable.
Data accepted only from real persons.
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)
Uploaded pictures can be seen on the personal profile page of the uploader.
