Ornithological evaluation of the Tápió region, central Hungary
The Tipió region, located at the border of Pest and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok counties,. is a relatively small area surrounded by Gödöllő hills and the Jászság. A review in the literature showed that very few taxa were studied in this region. Our aims were to study the diversity of birds, to monitor the endangered species and to identify any threats to the bird fauna. We recorded 128 breeding species, 15 of which are strictly protected.
