About Cosmin-Ovidiu Manci

Hello everyone and welcome to my website!

Like you have already seen or maybe you know my name is Cosmin Ovidiu Manci and I work as a biologist at the Retezat National Park Administration in Romania.

Ever since I was a young boy I was passionate about nature, plants, bugs, animals…you name it. I used to spend endless hours surrounded by a fantastic world, and as I grew up this feeling didn’t leave. After finishing the primary school I continued my studies at the Forestry Highschool in Timisoara, and after this, the obvious choice was to study Biology. This was done at the Timisoara West University. I finished my Master Degree at the “Babes–Bolyai” University in Cluj with a paper on “Romanian Odonata”. In present I am continuing my studies with a PhD at the “Babes-Bolyai” University… again on dragonflies.

During these years I was involved in different projects and published several papers.

Any time it is possible I try to freeze some of the moments I am fortunate to see in nature. I do this in photos… and all these websites are in part because of this.


About this website

What about this website?

On this website I am trying to put together a photo album for Romanian species and not only. So, here you will find not only photos but also more information about birds.

  1. This is Thomas from ‘Walk the Wilderness” (http://walkthewilderness.net), reaching out to request you to give me a submission (link to one of your posts on your blog) for the next edition of “I and the Bird” blog carnival, that I m hosting.

    The “I and the Bird” blog carnival is about birds. Your submission can be any post on any of your blogs but on the subject of birds. The submission need not be the latest, however it would be nice if its not too old as well.

    Pl. send me (suresh_anand@hotmail.com) the link to your submission. Pl. also indicate the city and country where you live in your reply.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Inca o data “buna ziua” sau mai bine “buna seara”.
    am pozat duminica in parc, ei da in plin oras, o pasare pe care nu reusesc sa o identific. e frumos colorata e intre vrabie si cioara ca dimensiune. nu radeti de mine. stiu cateva pasari salbatice. si de 2 zile caut pe internet sa o identific.
    de asemenea am scris “pozat” pentru ca pana la o fotografie mai e drum lung pentru mine.
    indraznesc sa va intreb cum pot sa va trimit poza pentru a o identifica ?

    cu ganduri bune
