Rufous-tailed attraction arrival!

Rufous-tailed scurb robins are probably the latest arriving migrants in Attica. This year, however, they came almost 10 days earlier than usual, and on the 10th of May singing males had already occupied their traditional territories!

One of the rarest breeders, they have declined in numbers in the last years, being common only in the agricultural land around the airport. The reasons for their decline are not known, as their breeding grounds are still in a very good condition.
