Western Jackdaw is a new species to add to Kuwait’s list if accepted by KORC

Yesterday, I received a WhatsApp message from Mohammad Khorshed reporting a Western Jackdaw sighting at the Oxygen Gym in Sabah Al-Salem. I was fortunate enough to observe the bird myself. Should this be accepted by KORC, it will mark the first record for both Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf states.

Additionally, it’s notable that the Lesser Flamingo made its appearance at Kuwait Bay on Thursday, the 26th.
