Lilith Owl and more near Tabuk – Bird records by Viv Wilson

Lilith Owl is an uncommon but widespread species in Saudi Arabia and one I have personally not seen in the Kingdom yet. They favour escarpment edges and rock formations such as the one that Viv photographed a pair of birds at near Tabuk. This area is also good for birds of prey and Viv photographed Egyptian Vulture a species becoming less common and more difficult to see away from its stronghold on the Farasan Islands in the Red Sea I the extreme southwest of the country. He also saw both Bonelli's Eagle and Common Kestrel here recently. I thank Viv for allowing me to use his photos on my website.
