Hi from Saudi Arabia
 
Just moved here and am eager to learn about the birds here. Anyone have any suggestions as to good bird guides for the Arabian Gulf area?

Field Guide to the Birds of the Middle East by Richard Porter, S. Christensen and P. Schiermacker-Hansen is fairly good and includes the Arabian Peninsula. I know there's a 2004 reprint, but apparently they didn't change anything compared to the original which was published back in 1996. Note that another book with a rather similar name exists (writen by two of the same authors). It also included northern Africa, but the general quality is lower, so I would not recommend that guide over the guide mentioned initially in this post.
