Hi NicoleB, du bist auf Deutchland? I'm Tim and I am retired Army. I served in Iraq for two deployments and on my second one I saw over 80 species of bird on my COB near Tikrit! I saw a few on my first deployment but lost my binos upon arrival to Kuwait, soooo frustrating! Here's wishing you a safe deployment and many days of great birding if you are able to! My first bird in Kuwait was a Hoopoe Lark in flight, I was so excited to see a new bird so early! I'll have to show you my list one of these days if you want to see it. Take care!
