Attached is a short description of a 5 day tour with 2 birders from Holand. It was written by one of them (Erwin). In addition- attached below is a checklist for the tour.
"In March 2017, Carmel took us on a 6 days birding tour trough the south of Israel. On the first day we were picked up at the Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv. After having a very good lunch we did stop In Jerusalem to vist the Sacher Park. We did continue driving towards the daed see to spend our first night over there. Before closing the first day we did even hear the very rare hume’s tawny owl! The next morning we started with visiting an interesting drinking pool to see the cretzschmar's bunting and striolated bunting coming to drink. We continued our tour and spend 2 days in and around Eilat. What a great place and what a beautiful bird species. Also the birding migration was on it’s top peak which is a fantastic spectacle. Special species like green bee-eater, rüppels warbler, sand partridge, steppe eagle, citrine wagtail, striated heron, streaked scrub warbler, masked shrike, hooded wheatear and lichtenstein sandgrouse were seen during these days in Eilat. On our way to the Nizzana area, we did stop in a lark area to look for the rare greater hoopoe-lark. We did found a beautiful couple and this was even for Carmel a lifer! The last 2 days, we spend in the Nizzana area were we did visit several habitats. This resulted in estonishing species like macqueen’s bustard, cream-colored courser, barbary falcon, crowned sandgrouse and spotted sandgrouse."
