When we came to Saudi Arabia I hoped to see hoopoes, because I loved them in Kyrgyzstan even if they weren't very common. They don't come to my yard here, but I see them most days when I go on a walk. There are a few spots where I usually see them. I'll have to take a real camera to get a better photo.
Mynahs, sparrows, doves, and pigeons are really common here, and so are white-eared bulbuls. They're the most interesting ones to see out of the birds I see all the time. I also see black scrub robins quite often. I'm hoping to see white wagtails someday.
