Eurasian Wryneck at Udhailiyyah – Bird records by Nishan Xavier

The Eurasian Wryneck is an uncommon passage migrant throughout the whole of Saudi Arabia, mainly seen in late March to late April and late August to early October. There have been a few winter records but these are scarce. Most records are from under tress or shrubs where they are seen on the ground eating ants. The below photographs have been taken by Nishan in Udhailiyyah in the Eastern Province and he has kindly given me permission to publish them on my website.
