Bird Migration in Israel

king-fisher-at-hula-valleyExperience one of Israel’s greatest natural wonders by taking a trip up north to the Hula Valley. Explore the Hula Valley Nature Reserve and see thousands of birds from dozens of species. They represent a small fraction on the 500 million birds that cross Israel’s airspace twice a year.
 
Participants will get to see not only just the beauty and wildlife that the Hula Reserve has to offer, but also a piece of history.
What was once a place for migrating birds to relax on their yearly trip from Europe to Africa and vice versa, is now a reserve thanks to hard working scientists and nature activists. This 3,200-dunam lake is also home to unusual aquatic plants. Water buffalos can also be found grazing in some areas to protect the open meadow environment.birds-flying-over-mt-hermon
