Welcome to the world of Birds & Birdwatching in Israel!

Israel is situated at an intercontinental junction- a bottleneck for migration routes. An estimated 500 million (!!) birds pass through every spring and autumn, with 545 species in record. This website features Israel's latest birding news.

Enjoy and good birding!
