Some of the themes (questions):
Júlia Lovranits is a writer; she is also a biologist who has been a birdwatcher since she was a child. She knows almost everything about birds.
She is a member of BirdLife Hungary, and a volunteer at a hospital for wild birds in her spare time.
She has always loved stories and tales; as a talented storyteller, she consciously collects stories wherever she goes.
Since she is an expert on birds, she specializes in bird tales, legends and myths and combines them with interesting and useful pieces of information.
Let’s see an example – a Bulgarian folktale about storks.
She wove the tale of their long migration from Europe and Africa, and even the stories of real storks who were somehow strange or amazing. There was one, for instance, that came home from Africa with a spear in its body, and raised its nestlings and lived on. Another one came to Hungary from Spain and since then he has not migrated at all.
