Vinu Mathew has been seeing quite a lot of Bee-eaters recently and has managed to take photos of both and . He has kindly sent me some of his photos and allowed me to use them on my website some of which are shown below.

Both species of Bee-eaters have been reported quite widely across the Eastern Province in the last two weeks with birds seen in Jubail, Dhahran, Hafuf and Udhailyah.

Both species are common passage migrants and have an extended spring passage so birds will, hopefully, continue to be seen for some weeks to come.

Across the street from where I live I saw a beautiful male pheasant eating in the tall grass. I was able to take 2 acceptable photos. I was mesmerized by his beauty.
