POWERED BY MERLIN

Unique social passerine with a disproportionately long tail and very short and rounded wings. Overall pallid sandy-brown. Often seen hopping on the ground with its tail cocked. Favors vegetated desert wadis and plains in the Middle East; also found near human habitation. Eats arthropods, plants, and berries. Moves around in noisy social groups; the subject of intensive studies for decades.
