I never thought that there is such a large variety of birds living in Cairo. Check this photo collection by namq on flickr. Or you could check his blog Notice the tags, they have the scientific name of each bird along side the English name. Never knew that a Bulbul is called so in both English and Arabic. Not only that but there is a large family of Bulbuls living in Africa and Asia.
UPDATE: I managed to photograph some bulbuls too :)
