Re no.5, according to the eBird checklist for this location, Variable occurs, not Pied, so it's possible.

Nos. 2 & 3 look like juvenile Mourning Wheatear.

I'm not sure what no.4 is.

No.5 is a female-type Wheatear, but I'm unsure which species it is.

Difficult one but perhaps more likely to be Greater Green - the bill is heavy and hook-ended, there's a yellow eye-ring and also yellow gape flanges, all of which seem to suggest this species. I...

I remember seeing Pied Wheatear unexpectedly at Durnalik (close to Gaziantep), back in 1993. I must check their distribution. I was looking for Kurdish Wheatears but didn't find them.

It would be interesting to know where the Pied Wheatear in no.1 was seen, as I don't think Pied is that regular in Turkey.

No.4 could be Eastern Black-eared, but I wouldn't like to rule out Pied...

Abietinus, as far as I know. There could of course be other races thrown in, like brevirostris. I don't know much about either this race or caucasicus to be honest. Calls heard in the UAE are...

No.1 looks like Eastern Black-eared Wheatear, whereas no.2 is Desert.

I guess Nile Valley is correct for the Sunbird.

What reason did you have for thinking this was Eastern Bonelli's? It would be a great rarity in any of the Gulf countries. This looks like a Chiffchaff to me.

Pallidirostris occurs on passage and the odd bird probably winters. If you ask me, no.3 looks a bit like one. No.4 looks more like aucheri.

For the time being, both races are part of the Great Grey...

Looking again, the head pattern on the bird on the left isn't right for Spot-billed - could be a female Mallard. Bil ahape and pattern is wrong on the bird in the middle.

1. I suspect this is a Black Drongo. Rictal spot just visible, black-and-white pattern on undertail-coverts suggests an immature.
2. Sorry, this is Yellow-footed.
3. Sorry, just Common.
