This is one of the few other birds I was able to get a shot of when I was in Dubai - last weeks flamingos were the highlight - but this was one of the birds I saw the most of!
Given that the temperature were VERY high I was rather pleased to get any pictures of anything! Its hard to focus with sweat in your eyes and taxis stooping insisting that you need to be rescued!
This is a White-Eared Bulbul. Its not the most remarkable bird in the world - but there is a good story attached to it.
The arabic for bird is pronounced "bul", so this is a White-Eared BirdBird!
There, now you know!
