Flocks of Spanish Sparrows – Haradh

Whilst birding the Haradh area I came across several large flocks of Spanish Sparrows. This is a common resident of northern and western parts of the Kingdom with numbers increasing in the winter months. They are not so common in the area where I live in the east of the Kingdom but numbers are increasing.

The Haradh area is probably the best place to see them in the Eastern Province with the birds shown here flocking in their hundreds in newly cut pivot irrigation fields, particularly liking the longer grown to the side of the main irrigation equipment.
