My Kikinda Town!

With the International Conference on the Survey, Monitoring and Conservation of the Long-eared Owl (to give it the official title) over I had time to reflect on the phenomenon that is the amazing parliament of Long-eared Owls that gather in Kikinda, northern Serbia.
In the town square there were already nearly 200 birds gathered – and winter hasn’t really even kicked in yet. They can expect to see at least three times that number by January!
Kikinda can truly claim the title of Long-eared Owl Capital of the World!

    Hi, my wife and I are avid birders and are planning a trip to Kikinda to see the Long Eared Owls. We plan to be there at the end of February. Will there still be some LEOW’s at this time .

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you
