Jordan Day 3 Aqaba Town

3rd March 2023

A very showy Masked Shrike was in the middle of town not concerned with the heavy traffic or the 100s of folks passing close by

As it’s Friday, most places are shut including the obs. Mid-morning I headed to town to do some shopping. I grabbed a bite to eat and crossed the road and bumped into a Masked Shrike on a fence at very close range. After spending some time with the shrike, I started birding the area and came away with single Black Redstart, White-throated Kingfisher, Bluethroat, Siberian Stonechat, Reed Warbler, 2 Whitethroat, 2 Hoopoe and 4 Red-throated Pipit. Not bad considering I wasn’t even attending to go birding today.

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
