Common passage migrant and winter visitor. Although this bird superficially recalls the Mediterranean’s Sardinian Warbler, it is a range restricted Middle Eastern species. It has the habit of waving its tail in a peculiar way.
Where in Kuwait
It has a fairly long black tail which appears to be constantly moving as it forages in arid or semi-arid conditions where it favours treeless scrub from Al Abraq in the west to Khiran in the south
In the world
It has an extremely large range with a stable population and the breeding range stretches from south-central Asia through to western Asia. During winter, the populations travel south and south-west of their breeding range and is found in southern Iran, Arabia and Northeast Africa from Sudan to Somalia
