I´m curious about the common usage of "hungrig sein" vs "Hunger haben." I have always heard the latter, but then again I have never lived in a German-speaking area. Vielen Dank!

Both are fine to use. 'Ich habe Hunger' is a bit more colloquial than 'Ich bin hungrig' but apart from that they are equivalent.
