Common Kingfisher at Deffi Park Jubail – Bird records by Vinu Mathew

Vinu Mathew went to Deffi Park last weekend and saw two Common Kingfishers. Birds appear to spend the winter at this site and can often be seen along the small stream that runs along one edge of the park. The bird appears to be a male due to its all black lower mandible. Male Common Kingfishers are much less common than females in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, but are still not that uncommon. I thank Vinu for the information and permission to use his photos on my website.
