Birding Hungary

We ended up with some 140 species, of which about 120 or so were life birds. Some of the birds were of course seen in the US or Africa. We had a least one mega rare bird, Isabelline Wheatear, and several other really special birds, like the Ural Owls in the Zemplen Mountains. I do believe Zsombor was able to find about every bird that was possible in the areas where we visited, given the season. We met up with another couple, the husband was a big lister and chaser, and he seemed pleased with Hungarian Bird Watching. I think they are clearly the right choice for the country. I understand they also go into Rumania, and possibly Transylvania.
