Birds of Oman - description of behaviour/habits

The behavioural patterns of bird species, in particular their "social behaviour" (territorial vs. communal), are described here for their stay in OMAN/ARABIA. The behaviour of migratory birds when staying elsewhere, e.g. overwintering in the southern hemisphere, may be entirely different.

These pages are largely based on our own observations. For more salient facts on any bird species please refer to a field guide.
