First chicks of the year

Permalink 01:07:23 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

The breeding season of palm doves is well underway and others including graceful prinia and crested larks are laying. When I came in for lunch today, the bird below was resting on my window. Before it appeared I heard what I thought was a warbler contact call. However as I watched this guy he called. It was him and not a warbler. Needless to say he now has a ring!!

Palmdove

We opened two 60ft nets for a few hours and only caught one bird. However it was the first of the migration season and is Abdulla's favourite warbler. A female Blackcap!
