Red Avadavat at Al Hair – Bird record by Munzir Khan

Whilst birding Al Hair, near Riyadh recently Munzir Khan came across a number of Red Avadavat and took the below photograph that he has kindly allowed me to use on my website. This species has been noted breeding in this area for the last twenty years with the birds almost certainly originating from escaped cage birds but now are part of the Saudi Arabian breeding species avifauna.
