Birding Wadi Wadj – Taif

Wadi Wadj in Taif is a wet area with flowing water in the centre of Taif. It attracts a good number of birds and is a great place to see Graceful Prinia in the reeds that grow along the waters edge. Other good birds are often seen here and during my last visit I saw a pair of Eastern Olivaceous Warblers a species I have not seen here before. If you have a four wheel drive it is possible to drive down the wadi through the water but it is better to bird on foot and jump across the flowing water when required to get to the bottom of the wadi.
