Egyptian Nightjar

Permalink 07:28:28 am, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

We have good observations of Egyptian Nightjars from August through to December - the catching and ringing of this individual this month extends the period of observation through the winter.
‘Abdulla is a registered trainee with the British Trust for Ornithology and has already ringed over 400 birds and over 60 species. His book would be the envy of many a trainee’

The bird was caught at the Hamalah Experimental Farm, an evening drive this last weekend turned up a total of three birds. Easily found as they plop down on the tracks at regular intervals in both time and distance around the farm.
