Recently I returned from a birdwatching and photography trip to Oman. The country offers a superb opportunity to see both Asian and African birds. I have been posting daily updates on my travel with quite a few pictures on my Wildlife and Photography blog here.



In total we had about 170 birds for 10 days. I had about 70 new birds which is quite something....

Mystery wader photo.

Posted Tuesday 20th January 2015 at 21:23 by Rick and Elis
Recently on our facebook page we posted a photo of a bird feeding with half of its head and all of its bill underwater which we have reproduced here. Bills are very important in identifying waders and so making this bird's ID a little tricky. If you didn't see that post have a guess what this bird is before scrolling down.

I got up in the morning watching from my window peregrine falcons. One was on the electric tower top and another two meters under the first.
In the afternoon I walked Cabío beach. Campsite´s pines were been cut. On the beach a cormorant was drying itself on the rocks while another wasswimming below him.
From Punta de Cabio I saw some shags and yellow-legged gulls on the islet Ingua.
In the mussel farming platform a heron was visible far away....

In Pueblonuevo del Bullaque, near Casa Palillos, the Information Center of Cabañeros National Park I could see see many cranes. At first at northeastward I saw a group of fifty.
I saw other group bigger, around 150 in the northwest. I noted the difference between the the young in the head and neck with the others adults.Sometimes a small disturbance occurred.
Needless to say they love the remains of cornfields.
Three vultures overflow me.
