Extremely rare vagrant. The region’s only Tropicbird. Since seabird watching is rarely practiced in Kuwait this species could be a more infrequent visitor.
Where in Kuwait
Only 3 records for Kuwait in and around the Arabian Gulf near the southern coral islands with the last confirmed sighting seen in 1974.
In the world
A restricted range species across the tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, north-west Indian Ocean and eastern Pacific Ocean. Locally there are breeding colonies on the coasts of Yemen, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
