The author made ornithological observations during 2003 - 2010 in the middle basin of the river Argeş, and observed 122 breeding species that are included in 13 orders, 38 families and 83 genera. 96 of them are certainly breeding species and 26 are probably breeding species. The results of the researches were cumulated with the data from the Atlas of the Romanian breeding species. By reference to the Atlas data, it is noticeable that 95 of the 106 breeding species cited in the Atlas were again recorded. 27 new breeding species were identified. Regarding the occupied habitat, most of the breeding species (72%) live in the terrestrial habitat. The summer visitor species and the sedentary species are preponderant; they are followed by the partially migrant species. 22 breeding species are listed in Annex I of the Birds Directive.
