This country as all the potential to be an exciting birding destination. What it lacks in natural diversity (it has limited agriculture, fresh water and very few wetlands) it makes up for with the geographic location at the main migration route from eastern Europe/Asia to Africa. Sadly few visiting birders makes it here and the resident birders can be counted in one digit numbers. So go here and make your contribution!

Aqaba Bird Observatory
Recently put in management by the RSCN, the Aqaba Bird Observatory is a superb birding area in southernmost Jordan. It has a great potential and its location is well-known; the famous Bird Research Centre in Eilat is just across the fence! The observatory is made up of water treatment ponds, pockets of reed and some scrubland with trees. Visitor facilities and information boards have recently been arranged and guided visits are possible. The range of species seen during migration and winter periods is very impressive and bird watching here is exciting indeed!
