    Awesome photographs! We are most likely moving to Kuwait soon and I can't wait to see all the birds. Do you feed birds in Kuwait, here (in the U.S.) I have a backyard birdfeeder and have passerines feeding all throughout the day. Do people commonly feed birds in Kuwait, should I bring my feeder? Thanks, I love you blog~ Crystal
