Jbel Sarhro desert birds in Morocco

21 December 2010.

After yesterday, today we go to the Jbel Sarhro stony desert.

Near the road, not far from the village, scores of lesser short-toed larks come to drink.

A bit further: male and female red-rumped wheatears.

This video, recorded in Morocco, is called Red-rumped wheatear Oenanthe moesta.

A small yellowish scorpion under a rock.

About ten dromedaries pass. A gerbil.

Then, Temminck’s larks looking for food.

Two long-legged buzzards flying around.

Fifteen black-bellied sandgrouse.

Late in the afternoon, close to the buildings of Boulmane de Dades: red-rumped wheatear; lesser short-toed larks; and crested larks.
