Hajhir Mountains, Socotra, Hadramawt, Yemen - March 14 2022
The attractive Socotra Bunting is perhaps the only endemic bird on mainland Socotra that potentially could require a bit of effort to find. It inhabits the highlands, so it took an hour of uphill trekking to find them. Apart from the bird itself, we were rewarded by breathtaking scenery. At the time of our visit, the birds were roaming about, feeding their young. Thus no singing or territorial behaviours took place.
