Bird records at various sites during last 7 days 03-09.02.2013.
I had two visitors from Sweden named Mikael Nelim and David Andersson.. This is the summary of the week. We started Abdaly and we saw Afghan Babblers well. Naturally White-cheeked Bulbul and Red-vented Bulbul were easy After seeing Bank Myna. Desert Warbler wasn’t that easy but we managed to see it. On the last day we thought that Lesser Crested Tern was the last tick but we were wrong. Just in the last hour of birding time I received phone call from |Mr. Malek stating that he sees a Hypocolius. All week along we had tried to find Hypocolius in vain. Therefore we drove toward Fintas desperately. We saw finally up to to 60 birds. We had today good birds locally too including 5 Ferruginous Ducks, Mistle Thrush and Yellow-browed Warbler.
Grey Hypocolius (Hypocolius ampelinus)
Hume’s Leaf Warbler (Phylloscopus humei)
Europian Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)
