I arrived for a short family visit in Israel yesterday afternoon. This morning, completely knackered after yesterday exhausting day of travel, I did the obvious thing – I went in the early morning to Ma’agan Michael to see the putative Asian House Martin – potentially the first for WP. Since it was found by Barak,

Luego de mucho tiempo sin compartir fotografías del Tingazú en el blog comparto hoy estas dos tomas obtenidas durante la mañana de hoy en el Club Refugio Ombú. Fue un fin de semana espectacular en el que recibimos la visita de Guillermo Terán, su hijo Andrés, y Federico Galfione, quienes vinieron desde la Ciudad de

I have seen at least fifteen Greater Spotted Eagles Clanga clangathis winter in the Jubail area. Birds winter at a number of sites in Saudi Arabia with the Jubail area the best for the species in the Eastern province. In winter birds are almost always near wetland areas with large areas where they can hunt

December has been a slow birding month for me so far. I’ve been reading the local eBird lists and noticed that birders have noticed that the species lists have dropped down to 10-20 species per outing. One reason I prefer fishing to birding is that I’ve never been “skunked” while birding. There have been many

It has been raining and gray here for days that feel like weeks. It seems to make the red cardinals stand out even more than usual. It reminds me of something Terri Guillemets wrote: “Winter is the slow-downWinter is the search for selfWinter gives the silence you need to listenWinter goes gray so you can

Today was another one of those fantastic winter days we are lucky enough to have in Oslo. Temperatures down to -9C, blue skies, no wind and with a lack of moisture in the air it never felt bitterly cold. My attempts at birding were moderately successful. Maridalen didn’t provide too much of interest with no

Whilst in Tanoumah I found a lizard that looks like Pale Agama Trapelus pallidus hassion a large roadside boulder and another on a dry-stone wall in the Tanoumah area. The species is normally found in rocky areas and open plains, preferring vegetation areas. This lizard has a medium-sized body up to15 cm in length, with

Hey there, reader. Why yes, this is another one of those obligatory end-of-year roundups where we highlight popular stories we published this year. What’s that, you say? You are an obsessive reader of Audubon magazine and Audubon.org and surely did not miss a single story we produced? Well then, first, thank you! But aren’t you curious what stories were
