One of the greatest treasures of the HortobÃ¡gyâ€™s special fauna is beyond doubt the water avifauna, which is admired and surveyed by ornithologists from all over the whole world. It is mainly at the time of the birdsâ€™ migration in spring and autumn that the wetlands of the park spring into commotion, wild geese and mallards arrive in their thousands, but the greatest spectacle is to be provided by to the first crane flocks appearing on the horizon with flutelike calls. As they draw closer, the news spreads over the plain like wildfire. The event attracting the largest amount of animals in HortobÃ¡gy, the autumn migration of the cranes, has begun.
