Abstract
    Due to the dynamic nature of the sea it can be seen as foreground in computer vision applications. This problem concerning dynamic background subtraction (DBGS) is primarily addressed in the scope of maritime traffic. In this dissertation the DBGS techniques suggested for ships are tested for the monitoring of birds in marine video content. After subtraction, foreground candidates are filtered by a classifier based on their image texture. The remaining foreground items are counted and tracked.
