Most birdwatchers, residents and visitors will initially base themselves within Muscat. The surrounding habitats, consisting of rocky hills, vegetated wadis, sandy coastlines, gardens and parkland offer several interesting birdwatching sites. Although the more improtant sites are covered individually, almost any area with water, scrab or trees attracts birds.
The Wetland is home to an amazing 291 species of birds that may be present at different times throughout the year. Visitors can see wading birds such as the Black-Winged Stilt that are resident at the Wetland all year. Magnificent Eagles arrive in November and may spend the winter in Muscat. The Wetland is not just a special place for birds; it is also a safe haven for Oman’s plants, butterflies and other species.
