Open Desert
Vast area of open desert is present in the region. Sand desert with scarce vegetation cover may support little bird life. Few birds are adapted to live in the desert like Hoopoe Lark, Cream-coloured Courser and various species of larks. The Desert Lark is more associated to rocky areas.

Inland Water bodies
The first type of natural inland water body is represented by fresh water springs, which are scattered mainly in the Northern and Eastern part of Bahrain. This kind of habitat in the desert area is very important retreat for resident and migratory birds. Waterfowls and various passerine species are regular visitors to the springs and the associated streams. Recently many of the springs dried out due to the depletion of underground water reservoir. Artificial and man made reservoirs are another type of inland water bodies. Birds like Little Grebe, Coot, Little Bittern and Spotted Crakes can be seen in this kind of habitat.

The long shoreline of Bahrain islands represent an important bird sites for large number of water fowls and shore birds. Kentish Plover, White-cheeked Tern and West Reef Heron, Socotra Cormorant are examples of breeding species. However, the vast inter-tidal mud-flats attract large number of wading birds in most time of the year. Many areas along the shores are considered as important bird areas.
