Bahrain Systematic List 2006
last update May 23rd


Please note to print please set your printer to LANDSCAPE

Feral escapes and introduced species with a breeding record of ten years or more are included on the list.

Species NOT numbered to the left and/or are also highlighted in blue are NOT accepted on the current list.
These observation are included here for their historic value.
The recorders comment at the time of submission is indicated in the right hand column
Other feral species listed are those most often seen in the field but are currently unacceptable for inclusion.
Cage birds are extremely popular.in Bahrain you can encounter birds from anywhere across the globe.
My thanks to the many Bahrain Bird Recorders who over the years initiated and then maintained the list.
