The migratory birds


 cigognesDid you know?

Over 530 million birds cross Israel each year during migration, more than 1 million are large raptors.

Israel is, outside of the Isthmus of Panama, the most important gateway to the world of migratory birds.

Flows from northern Europe and northern Asia converge here every year in spring then follow the Red Sea and join the Rift Valley in Africa, then back in the fall.

The main species of migrant birds are the white and black storks, white pelican, the buzzard and the hawk boudrée of Levant.
