Birding Tehran, February 2016

Lying in the foothills of Tochal mountains, Tehran is providing an opportunity to see montane birds hassle-free. Also Tochal provides a wintering habitat for some interesting migrants such as Black-throated Thrush and Eversmann's Redstart.
There are several valleys that are good for birding; my favourite is Golab Darreh.

in winter Wallcreepers move to lower levels and can be seen easily
