Abstract: The Szigetköz riparian area on the River Danube has become a key-area in Hungarian nature conservation. We summarized the ornithological research in the area, and compiled a list of 208 bird species. This list was compared with national (Hungarian Red Data Book, the lists of protected and strictly protected species) and international (Appendices of the Bern Convention, list of the Corine Biotope Project and the IUCN Red List) red data books and lists. Our conclusion is that the area harbour high species diversity, and the regionally most vulnerable species are the nationally most valuable ones. More active nature conservation is needed to preserve even the common species, relating to wetlands and water.Keywords:
