Sandgrouse in November - Slide Show
All digiscoping photography courtesy of James. P. Smith ©

Over the last few days we've had some exceptional luck in viewing several species of sandgrouse in the southern desert. Five species are regular in Israel and of those, Crowned, Spotted and Lichenstein's Sandgrouse are the most sought after by European birders. Here we present a small selection of recent images of these wonderful birds.

Enjoy!
