Not many people know this, but Israel is a central location for bird migration. Every year, about 500,000,000 – that’s five hundred million birds migrate over Israel. And it makes for a spectacular sight. Why is this so? Firstly, Israel is located at the center of three continents and has a diverse climate – on the same day, there can be snow on Mt. Hermon and just two hours away people could be at the beach. About 550 different species of birds fly over the country during the migration. A key resting point for the birds in the Hula Valley, located in northern Israel. There is plenty of food for the birds and a safe place to rest there. Many people come to see the birds, and it is quite the remarkable sight!
