The 20 best birds of Belgrade and where to find them

10,000 Birds

Several pairs have chosen the Albania Palace, a high-rise at Terazije St. Some five years ago I was involved in a project of ecotourism evaluation of the river Danube in Serbia, which included the city of Belgrade, founded at the bank of this river. The toughest thing for me, as a local birder, was to choose the most attractive birds because those that attract my attention are generally all too common in the northwest of Europe, from where most visiting birders are coming.

In 1951, King Zog I, the exiled ruler of Albania ( I am making not a word of this up ) bought an estate called Knollwood in Muttontown. Long Island is a land of many stereotypes, yet “forests full of mysterious ruins” is not really one of them. But when you can’t get to Peru, sometimes you just have to make do closer to home — for instance, at the Muttontown Preserve.

Welcome to the Blue Heart of Europe

Conservancy Talk

While it happened to be the beautiful aqua-blue Soča River in Slovenia that they chose, it could just have easily been the Tara River in Montenegro, the upper Neretva River in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Vjosa in Albania, or any number of other rivers and streams in the region — they all share the quality of being dream-like, beautiful and largely a secret to most of the world.

There’s a bear! There’s a bear!

10,000 Birds

This September I found myself on a bear tracking tour organised by Natural Greece in the prime bear habitat of the Pindos range – the southernmost bear country in Europe, heading for the 2,520 m / 8,270 ft high Gramos Mountain along the border with Albania. In the most of Europe, Brown Bear is a mythical creature that lives only in mediaeval tapestries and folk tales. It has become extinct, one may say, but such formulation hides the gruesome fact: it has been exterminated. By us.

The Greek Strategy

10,000 Birds

To reach Prespa Lakes, from Niki continue through Florina, from there right for Albania and veer right for the lakes. Have you read my blogs on birding Greece ? Presuming that you live somewhere in Europe and plan a car trip to Greece, let me suggest a couple of routes that will increase your tour list. Driving from France or Germany to Greece, you are likely to pass through my hometown of Belgrade and continue south following the E75 through the FYRO Macedonia.

The Prespa Lakes National Park in Greece is well hidden among the mountains at the triple border with Albania in the west and the FYRO Macedonia in the north. The other day I was exploring a new area for the first time, birding the national park that I’ve watched only in BBC documentaries, the place famous for the largest Dalmatian Pelican colony in the world – more than 1300 pairs! Have you heard of it? Can you pinpoint it on a map?

Although some sub-populations have shown recent increases (including in Greece, Montenegro, Albania, Bulgaria, Russia and Turkey), this species’s population is suspected to have decreased rapidly over the last three generations… “Former declines were primarily caused by wetland drainage, shooting and persecution by fishers. Out of just under 200 bird species I observed this year in SE Europe, there are 6 threatened species.

Birds and People: A Book Review

and also Modern Iraq, Egypt, Albania, Mexico, Poland and the Philippines. It took me a while to wrap my mind around the concept of Birds and People , Mark Cocker and David Tipling’s book that, in 592 pages, explores the intersection of just that—birds and us. I’m not sure why. It’s not like I had forgotten lists created with friends of ‘songs with birds in the lyrics’, my personal favorites being Sondheim’s Green Finch and Linnet Bird and the Beatles’ Blackbird.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted between now and zero emissions in 2050).
