Hula Nature Reserve, Northern District, Israel
The Hula Nature Reserve is a site of world-wide importance for water birds and is a most important wet habitat in the Middle East
The greatest number of species can be viewed during the winter, from October through May, which includes both the fall and spring migrations. The best time of day to come is the late afternoon, immediately before sunset, when the birds, who leave the reserve during the day, fly in for the night.
As one gazes upward, one can see thousands of birds of every imaginable size and species gathering in the Reserve. It’s a sight that is not soon forgotten. There is a Hula Valley Birds Festival for one week every November.
Birders from all over the world come to view some of the 500 million birds that fly over Israel every autumn, making this country a paradise for nature lovers and twitchers. Enjoy guided tours with professionals, lectures, ringing demonstrations and a mobile hide.
