Hi from Saudi Arabia (1 Viewer)

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.
