Migratory Birds to Bahrain


In the Kingdom of Bahrain, over 290 species of birds have been observed, the majority being passing migrants.  Monitoring migratory birds isn’t always easy, as many migratory birds fly at a great height, making them hard to see. Some birds, such as cuckoos (family:Cuculidae) and orioles (family: Oriolidae), migrate during the night.  There are others which migrate during the day, such as hoop (family: Upupidae), swallows (family:Hirundinidae), pipits and wagtails (family: Motacillidae), and larks (family: Alaudidae).
