When would be a best time for birdwatching in Israel?
It is a difficult question to answer since each season has its own bird species, though the spring is characterized by a large variety and numbers of birds. Winter is a very good season for watching many sea- shore birds and duck species and some raptor birds in the Negev, as well as a good time due to the present weather in the south of Israel.
What is included in the tour?
We cover all the costs of the tour. The rate includes : Transportation- from and to the nearest town and from and to the airport, guidance, all meals and accomodation and park or site entrance fees. .
How many species am I likely to see?
The number will vary with the season, though in spring time we can see up to 200 species of birds in a week.
What do I need to bring with me?
You will need a good pair of binoculars. A telescope is highly recommended but not essential as we carry scopes in the field. A good field guide for the birds of the region is also needed.
