    Many hundreds of birds were present in the Thumamah area and were easily located by their strange 'corncrake'-like calls. Not knowing what to expect of the avifauna of the country was quite exciting at first but began to wane Birds of the Riyadh region book on arrival when I was informed that the Holy Month of Ramadan had just commenced, and I along with everyone else would be forbidden from eating or drinking in public for one month. After this wonderful day, I really fell for this area, a rocky escarpment with springs, supplying the nearby dairy-farm and settlements with water and lush vegetation ideal for wildlife. Riyadh is the capital and largest city. More specifically, Girls of Riyadh is a self-confessed Saudi Sex and the City, tracing the lives of four twentysomethings from the capital's wealthy 'velvet class' - clever Sadeem, dumpy Gamrah, sassy Lamees and the rebellious half-American Michelle - in a series of weekly emails sent out by a sharp-tongued and 'shamelessly' red-lipsticked narrator. It contains about one quarter of the world's known reserves; 14 major oil fields exist.

    I used Internet as a vehicle in my novel to portray the impact of modern communication tools on the Saudi society in the past ten years. In late January, I took a couple of trips to Wadi Hanifah and Thumamah and saw two new species of Wheatear, Red-tailed and Hooded, but things really began to get interesting in March during Ramadan. In addition to the Rub al-Khali, Saudi Arabia has four major regions. The commonly occurring native species do not fall into any of these categories.

    Men still wear the traditional shimagh headcloth and thobe robebut they are now designed 'by Gucci, Christian Dior, Givenchy and Valentino'. After reviving in the midth cent. A treaty with Yemen that ended border disputes dating to the s was signed inand early the next year both nations withdrew their troops from the border area in compliance with the pact. Introduced and accidental species are included in the total counts for Saudi Arabia. Saudi forces have led Arab air attacks against Houthi rebels and their allies in Yemen since Yemen's president was forced to flee the country in Mar. King Abdullah died in Jan.
