Birds of Bratislava city parks

During our Sunday’s birding walk we have visited Sad Janka Kráľa public park, Ondrejský cintorín cemetery and Medická záhrada public garden. On our meeting point we found perching Peregrine Falcon. We registered Middle Spotted, Great Spotted and Green Woodpecker. We had an opportunity to compare various species of Corvids as we observed Hooded Crows, Carrion Crow, Jackdaws, Magpies and pair of Jays. Ondrejský cintorín showed us pair of Song Thrushes, few Black Redstarts, Robins and Greenfinches. The most interesting was probably pair of singing Chiffchaffs. Overall we observed 26 bird species and one Red Squirrel.
