At least three Pied Kingfishers remain – Jubail

The last visit to the Jubail area produced at least three wintering Pied Kingfishers. The birds cannot be seen in their normal area but we saw two in different areas and a third perched on a power pylon, and unusual place to see one. It will be interesting to see if the birds return or stay through the summer. It is great to see such a magnificent bird in the area and would be even better if they became resident. We also saw White-throated Kingfisher and Common Kingfisher on the same day, making all the Kingfishers seen in the Eastern Province present in the same area on the same day.
