Here are four pictures Les took on December 20th and December 21st.
Les tells me that the best place to find birds is on the local farms. His observation is mirrored by me in all the drier parts of the country. In fact birding is often easier in the drier places because you know exactly where to go!
I am amazed how widespread in Libya that little owl is. It almost looks camouflaged.
desert grey shrike
Les' picture proves that the grey shrike in Sirt is desert grey shrike algeriensis. This a great picture to see how much white there is in the wing.
No gallery of Libyan birds would be complete without a crested lark.
I am always looking for contributions to the blog. if you have a story and pictures I'll happily post them. I want this to become a communal blog celebrating Libyan birds from all quarters.
