    The PASTA project

    Apparently it was the biggest twitch in polish history with over 70 people on site at one moment. It's event in major newspapers. The bird is still present reportedly.

    The PASTA project

    Well, I have to admit that my motivation for this project has gone done a little bit today, since we just twitched one in Warsaw :) First record for Poland since 2004! Bird was found on 27/12 on a feeder right outside of a someone's window, then not found again until 1/1. Since then it was seen...

    Yeah, I am not claiming this is bad entertainment. When it comes to birding, it is rarely so, with the major exception of the Sieradz Bluetail. Yes, I got the messages also yesterday and today, no, I am not going to see that park ever again if I can avoid it ... at least with the Azure Tits, I...

    The PASTA project

    Saturday was forecast to be a lovely day, so we headed out already on Friday and camped outside a few kms from the Sobibór GGO site. The road that goes right to the owls is now closed for public - it has probably nothing to do with the owls, it's just that forest roads like this have been living...

    I hope to find some time to check it in some more favorable circumstances than "Friday afternoon", maybe something will come out of it. There is another really busy viewpoint in marshes (on Biebrza, not in Polesie) where you could see Short-eared Owls (reasily even though there were hordes of...

    Oh, this thing! That's about 25 kms west from the area I was talking about (Sobiborski Park Krajobrazowy). I have recently found about this trail by just stumbling upon it physically :) The area was quite busy with people and it looked just unlikely to me that an owl would be viewable from the...

    What, really? The office where? I feel like there is joke that flew over my head here

    The PASTA project

    Well I actually have been cooking much more since the pandemics started, because the place where we went to eat almost every day has been either closed or not attractive to visit since then. And since you ask nicely, that "other reason" was just a cheeky reference to the Great Grey Owls living...

    The PASTA project

    I took me 4 (sometimes extended) visits to the area over several years. My friend then came all the way from Czechia and saw it almost from the car. It's unpredictable and most of all, it's absolutely unbelievable how hard it is to notice it given its size. The call doesn't really travel very...

    This frankly seems like Sobibór would be the logical answer with these habitats. But how would they go unseen by the people coming there for the other reason? :)

    @jurek no problem caused, it was all in good fun :) I hope we aren't getting notorious intruders by now :) Good map, reinforces the idea nicely. Also shows this is the right area. @Xenospiza from our feeding experience, Tits don't care about anything that's not sunflower seeds :) But if there...

    The PASTA project

    Yesterday was a first full day that we have fully dedicated to the PASTA project. PASTA stands for Polish Active Search for Tit Azure and also for "I just made uP A nonSense for a funny Title, Alright?". Originally we wanted to give it two days, but alas, for today we had the workers to install...
