Birds - the living treasure of the Highlands
From April, with the arrival of the storks until, October, when the last travelers leave for the warm countries, you will be surrounded by trills or more advanced flights of the birds that populate Transylvanian Highlands, especially for nesting.
In winter, there is no shortage of enchanting meetings, with the hawks always paying attention to the next prey on the ground, with swans floating on the water mesh or with a lazy Ural owl, who rests during the day, to be in shape when the moon rises and until dawn.

Birds that we are proud of and that you may discover in the birdwatching tours available in the destination.
The birds described above and below are just some of the reasons why the protected area of community interest Natura 2000 SPA Podișul Hârtibaciului was designated for.
Transylvanian Highlands host nesting spots for the most significant population of lesser spotted eagle and European honey buzzard in Romania.
Here, the populations of Ural owl, European nightjar, middle spotted woodpecker, woodlark and red-backed shrike are large, compared to other sites in the country. The Corn crake population is significant on a global scale. It is also among the top ten sites in the country for the grey-headed woodpecker.
