Breeding Black-winged Stilts

02/06/2011 – Dhahran Hills

Today I saw another family of Black-winged Stilts with a single young chick (see photo), meaning there are now three pairs with young that have bred on the percolation pond in 2011. This has been a very good breeding year as many years no breeding Black-winged Stilts occur.
Other breeding species seen today incuded:-
Little Greebe
Eurasian Coot
Common Moorhen
Rufous Bushchat
Eastern Olivaceous Warbler
White-cheeked Bulbul
