Dubai is a great place for bird watching and very few people have experimented this here because there is a belief that in the desert there are no birds; but this notion has changed, since the migratory birds use this destination as a main route for travelling due to its geographical location and favourable climate. Every year environmentalists and bird watchers flock to Dubai with their bird watching equipment to capture the beautiful creatures on their cameras. There are some of the famous parks in Dubai which is a home to some of the rarest species of birds in the world.
We have witnessed the Sand and Kentish Plovers. These birds were spotted during our winter season, along with other species such as Osprey, Greater Flamingo, Marsh Harrier, Great White Egret, Spoonbill and Caspian Tern. The migratory birds land in our country from September to April. It is not a surprise but a fact that large flocks of Crab Plovers were seen here in this desert land.
