Birds Sightings from Kuwait: owned and managed by AbdulRahman Al-Sirhan

24/08/2008 at Pivot Fields

I was tempted to visit Pivot Fields again this morning like Khalid Al-Ghanem too in hope to get some good pictres of Great Bittern. While photographing we noticed that there must be two birds and indeed my two first pics show clear difference in facial markings. Especially blackish stripe down from the eye is very different with these birds. Also stripes on upper breast are different. Luckily birds were very co-operative today. Other birds today were very much same than yesterday.
