The bird ( Polish Ptak ) is a mountain in the High Tatras , in the midst of Buchentaltürme ( Buczynowe Turnie ) with an altitude of about 2131  m npm and is located in Poland in the Malopolska province in the district of Tatra County . The western slope belongs to the municipality of Poronin (district Murzasichle ) and the eastern slope to the municipality of Bukowina Tatrzańska (district Brzegi ). The Orla Perć (Eagle Walk) high trail leads over its summit .

Location and surroundings

Below the summit lie two valleys, the Buczynowa Valley in the east and the Pańszczyca Valley in the west.

The bird is separated from the summit of the Little Beech Valley Tower ( Mała Buczynowa Turnia ) by the Little Beech Valley Gorge ( Wyżnia Przełączka pod Ptakiem ) and from the Kreuzkoppe by the Vogelscharte ( Przełączka pod Ptakiem ).


The Polish name Ptak means bird and comes from the fact that the shape of the summit is reminiscent of a male genitals, which is colloquially referred to as a bird in Polish .


Hikers who dare to take the Orla Perć high-altitude trail have to go over the summit.
