Milan has an excellent knowledge of the field and of birds, and knows where to go in Serbia for finding important bird species. He is easy to be with and speaks English fluently, due to a temporary American stay in the past. He is very much interested in protecting Serbian nature in general and Serbian birds in particular. He is a pioneer, together with his friends, on nature protection in his home country. Indeed, this country has a lot to offer, and I appreciate very much that he is devoting a lot of his time to it.

I went out with Dragan for 2 days of birding in the wider Belgrade area. Thanks to his excellent birding skills, we saw a total of 81 species in the very end of a migratory season. Dragan and his friend Marko Rakovic were most amiable and knowledgeable birders, and I enjoyed my time with them immensely. I would definitely recommend birding in Serbia, especially with Dragan, and I hope to go again sometime.
