Pink-backed Pelican & Brown Booby – Jizan fish market

At the Jizan fish Market on the Red Sea coast in southwest Saudi Arabia, the fish traders occasionally come out and put all the fish offal in the road for the gulls. When the fish waste was out other birds such as Pink-backed Pelicans and Brown Booby will come in and try their luck. There was huge commotion and fighting with the bigger Booby and pelicans making off with food and the gulls fighting for the rest. The site is great for getting close to the birds feeding on the fish waste but is quite busy with people.
